What copyright issues apply?
A variety of works are protected under copyright law, including: text, film, sound recordings, scripts, musical compositions, photographs, blogs, diagrams and still images. So if any such copyright material will be included in your lecture recording this would need to be cleared with the rights owner before a recording takes place unless the fair dealing rule applies
As long as what you are including in your lecture is ‘reasonable and appropriate to the purpose’ of the lecture then limited amounts of copyright material can normally be safely used for the following purposes:
- Illustration for instruction
- Criticism, review, or quotation
- Caricature parody or pastiche
- Making an accessible copy
There is some further useful advice on copyright and lecture capture provided by JISC. If you would like to record guest speakers please read additional information on the following page.
