This online form is provided to you as a speaker in a course, seminar, lecture, or other presentation at Stanford University. Stanford would like to capture your presentation in audio and/or video format. To that end, we want to make certain that both you and the University have the necessary rights and protections to continue to benefit from your presentation. At the end of this process, a copyright release will be generated covering the captured presentation (“Recording”) and use of all accompanying materials (“Materials”). You will have an opportunity to print the release and a copy will also be emailed to you.
Stanford will hold the copyright to the Recording and would like to have the option to continue to use the Recording and Materials. In addition to creating an archive copy for educational purposes, possible uses of the Recording include, but are not limited to, inclusion in Stanford websites, the creation of CDs or DVDs, and delivery to the public via distribution partners.
Stanford is committed to using your presentation in ways that make sense to you. To that end, we’ve partnered with Creative Commons, an organization that provides a standard license that we can attach to the Recording as directed by you. So, for example, if you want the Recording to be available for any non-commercial purpose, then through this online resource, you can make that happen.
Finally, please understand that there is nothing in this Speaker Release requiring you to give your ideas to Stanford. If you plan to give the same talk somewhere else, there is certainly nothing in this release that would keep you from that engagement. And, unless there is an exception called out to you by your Stanford host, Stanford is happy to provide a copy of the Recording to you and will grant you a non-exclusive license to use the Recording in any way you’d like.
You may also download a PDF version of this release form to complete, or to review before completing the online form.
