Open uses of sound recordings and images

  1. 1. Open Uses of Sound Recordings and Images Francesca Giannetti MOOC-SIG | June 24, 2013 This work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution- NonCommercial 3.0 Unported License. Monday, June 24, 13
  2. 2. Copyright of Sound Recordings • in UK: year of publication/creation + 50 years • in European Union: year of publication/creation + 70 years • in USA: It’s complicated, but roughly speaking pre-1972 enters PD in 2067 while >=1972 is 95 years from publication • Handy-dandy chart: resources/publicdomain.cfm Monday, June 24, 13
  3. 3. Public Performance of Sound Recordings (USC Title 17 Ch 1 § 114) • Tier 1: Public performances that are entirely exempt from the performance right. • Tier II: Digital audio transmissions - subject to statutory license. • Tier III: Everything else.Thought to involve a high risk of copying. Requires negotiation of license with copyright holder. Monday, June 24, 13 Tier I exemptions: live performances, analog transmissions, AM/FM broadcasts, public radio Tier II types: webcasters, satellite radio, cable broadcasters, radio broadcasters that stream content on Internet Tier III types: on-demand streaming services, other service that does not adhere to “sound recording performance complement” (i.e. limitations on number of selections from a particular album or performer that can be played in 3-hr period)
  4. 4. Which influences the types of digital music services out there... • OA aggregators • Mostly PD (in EU), greatest content from European DLs • Special collections • Often unpublished works, or really old orphan works • Music downloads • On-demand streaming • Internet radio • User-driven sites Monday, June 24, 13 OA aggregators: National Jukebox, Internet Archive (USA); Europeana, ECLAP (EU); British Library Sound Archive (UK -- blocks non-EU residents). Special Collections: Belfer Cylinder at Syracuse U., UCSB Cylinder Project,Toscanini Centennial Series at UNT, Stanford’s Monterrey Jazz Festival Internet radio: includes Stanford University’s Riverwalk Jazz Collection: http:// Broadcasting license is less expensive than on-demand. User-driven sites: Soundcloud, Grooveshark, YouTube
  5. 5. These ones are the probably most useful for open educational purposes • OA aggregators • Mostly PD (in EU), greatest content from European DLs • Special collections • Often unpublished works, or really old orphan works • Music downloads • On-demand streaming • Internet radio • User-driven sites Monday, June 24, 13 Music downloading sites like iTunes can be useful too, but UT’s contract with edX stipulates that course materials be free of charge to enrolled students.
  6. 6. When underlying work is in copyright • “Free” on-demand sites: • Spotify (based in Sweden) • Rdio (US-based) • Rhapsody (PC only) • Xbox Music (PC only) Go to on-demand music streaming services first.Where there are gaps in the catalog, try user-driven/hybrid sites. • User-driven sites: • Grooveshark (hybrid) • Internet Archive (Community Audio) • Soundcloud • YouTube Monday, June 24, 13 Rdio has better Lat-Am coverage (Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Mexico) than Spotify (Mexico). Both services are about equal in terms of Asian coverage (but no China, no Japan, no South Korea in either). Europe and North America are almost equally well served.
  7. 7. When underlying work is in PD • ECLAP e-library for performing arts • Europeana (use their EDM search short- cuts e.g.“who:Lully what:sound”) • Internet Archive (Audio Archive) • National Jukebox (acoustical era recordings only) Monday, June 24, 13
  8. 8. Finding Images • Clear-cut answers regarding the various possible uses of an image can’t always be had • Uses that entail the most restrictions, whether underlying work or its photographic image are in PD or protected by copyright, relate to print publication and online availability to general public (!?!) • VRA’s Digital Image Rights Computator and Copy Photography Computator help navigate instances of fair use Monday, June 24, 13 DIRC at best tells you “fair use likely” or “use with caution” Typical fair use safeguards, like using only a small portion of a work, or using a low- resolution/thumbnail of image, are not particularly satisfying solutions in the visual arts. Is a MOOC an instance of making an image available online to the general public?
  9. 9. Finding Images (2) Monday, June 24, 13 It’s easy enough to find images licensed for reuse on the internet where the underlying work is eligible for copyright protection. But can we really use them??
