Part VA (tv and radio broadcasts)

The Part VA Statutory Licensing Scheme provides a Licence for University of South Australia staff to copy and communicate television and radio broadcasts from free-to-air, satellite and cable services for the educational purposes of the University without obtaining permission from the Copyright Owner.

Any television or radio broadcast can be copied, including podcasts of broadcasts originally aired as free-to-air broadcasts and available from a Broadcaster’s website (e.g. podcasts of ABC programmes originally screened on TV). Subscription services such as Presto, Stan, and Netflix are not covered by the Part VA Licensing Scheme.

To make content from these services and other commercially purchased content available online will generally require permission. For assistance with obtaining permission please contact Ask The Library.

A summary of the copying limits and the licensing conditions is provided in the Part VA flowchart.
