Individual academic staff members are responsible for ensuring that all content presented in their digital teaching material is copyright compliant. Copyright law allows limited use of AV material in universities. Not all content that can be used in the classroom can be used in a recorded version of the classroom session. The boundary for legitimate use of content is often clearly drawn between classroom use and online communication, such as via an iLearn subject site.
The following online services require more copyright vigilance. Look for content uploaded by the legitimate copyright owner that can be streamed or embedded. Do not download videos to show in class.
YouTube has Terms of Service that are considered a legally enforceable contract. Always check the terms or conditions of use when accessing a website's content.
Vimeo is another popular video site which grants users a limited, non-exclusive license to access and use the service for personal, non-commercial purposes.
The Moving Image Archive is another excellent source of free movies, films and videos.

Copyright law does not allow re-formatting of bought or hired films, videotapes or DVDs by the University without the written permission of the copyright owner.
The exceptions to Copyright law that came into force in January 2007 enable private citizens to copy a videotape that they own on to DVD, for their own private use does not apply in the University setting. It is also important to note that using a privately copied DVD for University purposes on University equipment renders the DVD infringing.
As an educational institution, Bond University has very limited rights to copy AV material.
Bond University is a signatory to the Screenrights Licence which only covers "off-air" copying strictly from radio or television media. This includes cable and satellite transmissions and podcasts that originated as broadcasts. It does not cover live web-casts or moving images and other sounds sourced from the Internet.
In the spirit of reconciliation, Bond University acknowledges the Kombumerri people, the traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which the university now stands. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging. Read more
