There are different provisions under the Copyright Act for playing of AV content (s28) and for making a recording for viewing at a later time (s113P). Viewing live streaming is permissible under classroom provisions (face to face or online). However, if the lecture is to be recorded limits on the amount and type of content that can be copied under the CA statutory licence must be observed. Copyright subsists in the screenplay, photography and music of films and videos and commercial DVDs cannot be reproduced.
In particular, it is important to include a complete reference to the works being used and include the Warning Notice at the beginning of the lecture.
As an educational institution, Bond University has very limited rights to copy AV material.
See further information on using video content in the sections below.
Under the statutory licence provisions in s113P of the Copyright Act, (the Screenrights Licence) off-air recordings can be used for the educational purposes of the University. Off-air recordings include TV, radio and cable or satellite TV, and free to air Podcasts and Vodcasts that originate as broadcasts.
There is no restriction on the type of program that may be copied, the amount that can be copied or the number of copies that may be made, if the copies are made available under the University's Screenrights licence.
Content made available under this licence can be found in the Library educational databases Edu TV and TV News shown below.
Bond University can play/show commercial films under s28 of the Act, but there are no rights for educators to reproduce/record DVD content.
Commercially produced DVDs can be shown in class but they must not be included in a recorded lecture or Collaborate class. The copyright owner's permission is required to copy and communicate commercially produced DVDs.
Exceptions to the limitation on recording videos are videos that carry a Creative Commons licence, or an Educational Use or Training permission statement. Videos made available under a CC licence can be recorded as long as acknowledgement is made in the recording and the Creative Commons licence is shown, e.g. [Creator's name], source link, CC BY.
An example of an Educational Use copyright statement:
This work is copyright. It may be reproduced in whole or part for study or educational purposes. Subject to an acknowledgement of the source, reproduction for purposes other than those stated above, or not in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act 1968, requires the written permission of the copyright owner.
A citation of a video with Educational//Training Use permission should include the following: 'Reproduced with permission from [copyright owner], source link'. Always include a link to the source of the work in citations.
Do a YouTube topic search > go to the the Filter symbol on the left below the search box > select Creative Commons under Features.
The resulting list will be videos with CC licences. Look under Show More in your video selection description area to see the CC BY licence.
Also see the Creative Commons Licences page for information on how to use CC licences.
Ensure the Warning Notice is displayed at the beginning of the lecture or as the first slide in your PowerPoint presentation.
Ensure the work being used is referenced correctly.
Ensure the limits on copying under the statutory licence are applied.
