Yes. Curtin participates in a Statutory Licence agreement with Screenrights.

The Screenrights Statutory Licence agreement permits staff to copy or communicate radio or television broadcasts recorded off-air for educational purposes. This includes films or documentaries aired on television, TV programs and podcasts of off-air broadcasts.  The Screenrights agreement covers programs obtained from free-to-air channels or Foxtel (but not pay per view programs).

You can use all or part of a broadcast and edit it as you see fit. You can screen the recording during a live lecture, incorporate it into an iLecture, or load it into Blackboard. If you provide access to the recording online through Blackboard it needs to be accompanied by an electronic warning notice.

The Screenrights Statutory Licence agreement does not cover video on demand services such as Stan, Netflix or Presto. The Screenrights agreement applies to broadcast programs only, not commercial videos.

The Library provides access to off-air news and current affairs programs through TV News.

Staff can also initiate program requests for upcoming TV content broadcast under the Screenrights agreement.  Refer to submitting a program request through Informit for more information.
