Video is protected by the same copyright law as other media, which means that the following policies apply:
Permission must be obtained for any use that falls outside fair use.
Make sure you get a signed permission form from the presenter so that you will be able to use the presentation in future classes. Contact the Media and Production Services Group for support for your projects.
The College licenses the use of music for the radio station and student events. Permission may be required for any uses that are not instructional.
Performance rights are vital if you are showing a film to the public. Some films in the library's collection may already provide these rights. To find out if a particular film does, look it up in the library catalog. If it does not, you will have request permission from the film's US Distributor. Many of these films will be available through Swank. They represent most major Hollywood studios. For assistance with this process, you may contact Emily Miles, x5604.
