The copying and communication of broadcast transmissions recorded off-air

The current agreement with Screenrights terminates on 31 December 2017. While a new agreement is being negotiated, you can continue to rely on the New Statutory Licence to copy and communicate broadcasts.

There are no copying or communication limits for broadcasts under the New Statutory Licence (this is also the case under the Part VA statutory licence). These copies may be included in library collections, provided to staff for use in classes while they are employees of the University and made available via secure University services like Blackboard.

The copies may be made at the University or by University staff at home. The University Library may be able to obtain copies of past broadcasts from other libraries that hold copies made under the New Statutory Licence.

All copies of broadcasts made under the terms of the licence must be labelled with an appropriately worded label. The text of the label is available in the 'Legal Forms' segment of this website.

The terms of the licence do not extend to commercially purchased or leased audio visual materials.
