I am thinking of creating a website allowing users to learn Japanese language with flashcards. This website will be for education purpose only and totally free. Basically each flaschards contains a question and an answer about a short sequence of video to test the student understanding. These videos are short extracts from Japanese animation DVD (e.g. Dragon ball etc...).

Is the fact of displaying these flashcards on a non-profit education website copyright infringement?

Note : I dont know if it matters here, but the website will also display the link for the users to purchase the original DVD on Amazon etc...


Yes, its copyright infringement

You may be able to raise a fair dealing defence but it is by no means certain that it would be successful.
