General Video Policy
See also “Photo Policy” in CSU, Chico’s University Publication Guide
- Never use video or photo from another source without permission from the copyright holder of that media.
- If you’re shooting video in a public space, such as outside a building on campus, you do not need to secure permission from people you record. But, if you shoot video inside a building or at a non-public event, we recommend that you get written permission from everyone in your video.
- If you video minors, you need permission from their guardians or parents. You can print the standard CSU video/image release forms from the Web in English or Spanish: https://www.calstate.edu/brand/resources/
Most books, journals, magazines, photographs, video clips, art, sound recordings, computer programs, and websites are protected by copyright law. In addition, architecture, motion pictures, and dance choreography can also be protected by the law. So when you use ideas, words or phrases, images, or sounds from another source, be sure to seek out the copyright holder and obtain permission before you include that work in your social media copy.
