You may wish to use 3rd party material in a lecture, have a guest lecturer or perform your lecture to the public. If you record lectures for students to stream or download you will need to consider the copyright implications of using such material.
Copyright and lectures
Recording your lecture creates creates extra copyright challenges.
- A demonstration of software functionality may not be allowed by the Software EULA. Please seek advice from the copyright team
- Ensure any images and texts are appropriately attributed
- Whilst we may play AV material in class we can only record programs that are broadcasts
- You will need a Warning Notice for Statutory Licenced Material attached to your lecture recording. Make the Warning Notice the first slide of your presentation and ensure it is captured in the recording.
- If you wish to use Audio Visual materials in your lecture recording please consult our Copyright Guide: Working with Audio-Visual Materials or contact Copyright Services to ensure your use meets copyright obligations.
Guest lecturers must follow the same rules that are normally applied.
There can be a risk of guest lectures bring in IP, of their employer or clients, that they may not have permission to use. If UniSQ then makes recordings of a guest lecture, or places slides containing this material on StudyDesk, we could be breaching the Copyright Act.
If you are a guest lecturer at another university, you should ensure that all your slides contain 'Copyright University of Southern Queensland’.
If you are guest lecturer at a conference or event, contact the event organiser for advice on copyright regulations.
Public lectures are very different because they are open to the public to attend.
If you wish to use content in a public lecture, you can’t rely on the Statutory Licence as usual. Thus you need to use material that is either in the public domain, is licenced under an appropriate Creative Commons licence or you have obtained permission for.
Citations must appear in a readable font and must appear on or near the reproduced work.
This includes in the credits of your document, presentation or film.
