Audio visual recordings
The University is covered by an agreement with APRA-AMCOS, ARIA and PPCA that allows music to be recorded and used in a number of ways. This is known as the ʻUniversities Licenceʼ.

Activities covered by the agreement include making audio and video recordings for use at university events, of university events and for educational purposes (that is, activities associated with a particular course of study or research) and making music available via a password-protected and login protected intranet site. Some music is excluded from the licence, and there are conditions for some of the uses.

All recordings made under the Licence must contain a special notice indicating that the recording has been made under the terms of the Licence and there are limitations on the distribution and sale of the recordings. In addition, some types and uses of music are excluded from the Licence. For example, the Licence does not permit copying recordings for use in, or making recordings of a performance of a grand right work (such as an opera or musical). ​

Reproduction notice requirements

All material copied under the Statutory Licence and communicated to students (LMS upload, email, etc) must have a warning notice attached near the front of the material (for example, as the second slide of a PowerPoint presentation after the title page). If the New Statutory Licence - Reproduction Notice PDF (see link below) is not used, then the following notice text must be included in entirety:
