The University pays licence fees allowing staff to copy and communicate texts and images, music and TV and radio broadcasts for educational purposes.
Staff are required to display the following prescribed notices with the material they copy or communicate under licence.
Part VA: TV and radio broadcast notices and labels
A prescribed notice must appear at the beginning, or immediately before the broadcast reproductions communicated to students electronically (e.g. via email or online). There is no prescribed size for the notice but it must be legible. The wording of the notice cannot be changed.
Each analogue copy of a broadcast (such as a video tape, or its container) must be labelled with required information including the date of the broadcast and the date the copy was made.
Part VB: Print and graphic notices
A prescribed notice must appear on, or immediately before all electronic copies made under the Part VB statutory licence. There is no prescribed size for the notice but it must be legible. The wording of the notice cannot be changed.
You do not need to attach the notice to hardcopy reproductions such as class handouts and readers.
