I believe TED Talks are under copyright protection.
Yes, I think that is correct. Has anyone from LingQ ever approached TED about getting permission? I looked at their request-for-permission form (see links below), and they ask for one's position in the organization requesting the permission. It would probably be more meaningful if someone on the LingQ team requested the permission, rather than just a member like me. Is that something LingQ would be interested in pursuing? The TED talks are an awesome resource.

And yet some TED Talks are part of the LingQ libraries. So either you actually do have the permission or you really might want to ask for it.September 20 um 08:55
I wasn't going to post anything about it but since you brought it up, as a general comment I'd say that some members seem to be quite clueless about copyright protection laws. I remember there was sometimes ago a content creator that accused lingq of stealing her/his content.
The person was obviously barking up the wrong tree, since lingq can't police everybody and as lingq personnel pointed out they will remove unlawful copyright material.September 20 um 11:15
