TV and radio

Television and radio broadcasts, including podcasts of broadcasts and broadcasts which have otherwise been made available online by the broadcaster may be received in class without any licence or permission.

Broadcasts may be recorded, copied, and communicated for the University's educational purposes. The definition of "educational purposes" is broad and includes, but is not limited to, use in courses of study, administration that supports the educational activities of the University, and inclusion in the library collection. This is allowed under the educational statutory licence in the Copyright Act, subject to a remuneration agreement with Screenrights, the audio-visual copyright collecting society. The licence applies to broadcasts from both free to air and pay services, including reception via cable and satellite.

There is no restriction on the amount or type of program copied. For example, feature films, advertisements, news, drama or documentary programs may all be copied. Whole programs may be copied, or program segments may be made into a compilation.

Copies may be digital or analog and there is no restriction on the number of copies which may be made.

If you would like to add a program to the QUT collections you can request an off-air recording. The program will be made available for all staff and students as a streaming video in QUT Media Warehouse.

Copies may be made available online, for access by QUT staff and students only. Digital copies carry a copyright warning notice attached when they are made available online or transmitted. The notice wording is available at Notices.

Materials made available under the statutory licence, communicated on QUT Media Warehouse or through streaming services such as EduTV or ClickView, have the required notice attached to them as part of the administrative process.
