Can I project TEDTalks to a group of people? - Yes, as long as you comply with the terms of the Creative Commons license outlined above (See: "What does the TED Creative Commons license allow?").

In fact, we encourage you to find creative ways to share TEDTalks with your friends, family, students, colleagues, and communities. (See Ways to Spread TED.)
