Description of information obtained WHAT IS COPYRIGHT LAW? • Copyright is a form of protection provided for original works of authorship. This can include literary musical, graphic and audiovisual creations. Copyright basically means the right to copy. • Copyright infringement occurs when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner. WHAT IS COPYRIGHT LAW? • When you own the copyright of a piece of work, it means literally that you have the “right to make copies” of that work. By extension you also have the right to license that work to others who want to use it. It is a form of intellectual property law that protects an original piece of work from being pirated and used without permission of its creator.

It is important that wherever you plan to film you get permission or notify the appropriate authority. You will also need to make sure you have Public Liability Insurance. It is good practice to inform local police for ALL exterior location filming, and it may be a legal requirement to do so. Other aspects of your script or shoot may also mean you need to get in touch with the police. http://www.redbridg WHAT IS COPYRIGHT e.gov.uk/Map?

Weakness- If you don’t ask will they know? Surely you’d be tempted too.

There were many numbers therefore it was easy to find someone to call however, it was not clear which number was best suited for me. This is straight forward but you must have a plan to let them know about.

You must create a release form for the cast in order for them to take part in your music video. This must included their name, when they will be working, what their role will require and any other additional information. 13/06/12

DESCRIBE THE PARTS OF THE CODE RELEVANT TO MUSIC VIDEO PRODUCTION? Fewer than 25% of people said they had seen something on TV before the watershed in the last 12 months that had made them uncomfortable or they had found offensive.

Not more than half the amount of people found it offensive so is it enough to change this? And what about the people that don’t even care?

∋Τhe top five concerns measured as a percentage of all teens questioned were: sexually explicit content, offensive language, violence, nakedness/naked body parts, news and animals being killed or mistreated.’

There are five areas which may cause offence. You need to satisfy them all in order to not make your video in breach of ofcom.

13/06/12

Offensive language: masking offensive language is one way in which broadcasters may edit post-watershed material to make it suitable for broadcast pre-watershed

Masking offensive language before the watershed could work but then don’t the children have access to computers and the videos with the offensive language?

13/06/12

Violence: broadcasters editing post-watershed drama material including violent scenes for pre-watershed transmission should ensure that such scenes are appropriately limited.

Violence needs to be kept to a bare minimum so scenes are appropriate before the watershed.

13/06/12

Ofcom acknowledges the importance attached to freedom of expression in the broadcasting environment. Music videos are an artistic and creative medium, which can and do sometimes contain challenging content which some may find offensive. However, while music videos must have room for innovation and creativity, Ofcom has statutory duties with regard to

Music videos can be creative but also must be suitable for under 18’s. This may ruin things and ideas that the director or producer had to begin with losing them money if they have to change it.

all programmes, including music videos (whatever the genre), to: • ensure that under-eighteens are protected; and • enforce generally accepted standards so as to provide adequate protection for members of the public from the inclusion of offensive and/or harmful material. 13/06/12

http://www.indepen dentproducerhandbo ok.co.uk/181/4aprotecting-under18s-and-harm-andoffence/schedulingand-thewatershed.html

The main way in which fewer than 18s may be protected from potentially harmful and offensive material is through the appropriate scheduling of programming.

Scheduling of programmes/videos may not make a difference as children will stay awake if they want to but a positive for this is that ofcom have done what they can however its then up to the parents.

13/06/12

http://www.indepen dentproducerhandbo ok.co.uk/181/4aprotecting-under18s-and-harm-andoffence/schedulingand-thewatershed.html

Some content may be considered so potentially harmful and offensive (e.g. material that "...might seriously impair the physical, mental or moral development of people under 18") that it should never be broadcast on television

Strength is it gives you that to consider but at the sae time you could create something you subjectively believe isn’t offensive but someone else may find it offensive.

This can include: scenes condoning sexual violence, very explicit sado-masochistic practices. 13/06/12

http://www.indepen dentproducerhandbo ok.co.uk/200/4bcrime/keypoints.html

Videos must not contain material that is likely to encourage or incite crime, or lead to disorder. Videos should not contain detailed descriptions of criminal techniques that could enable the commission of the crime, unless there is editorial justification.

Avoid encouraging criminal activity

Garth Brooks’ “The Thunder Rolls” caused quite a storm in the country scene. The video’s depiction of domestic violence between a vengeful wife and a cheating husband led the Nashville Network and Country Music Television to ban its airing.

There was a gun in this video which went fore crime. This could badly influence children.

The video for the song I Like the Way She Do It contained the lyrics: "It never enough she like it rough. We keep it going and we switch positions, listen". Another video for the song If I Can't contained the words "pussies","nigger","motherfuck er" and "fuck".

I need to make sure that my song does not include explicit lyrics and words which may cause offence.

Equipment Coverage Rental equipment Your own equipment A Crash Course in Liability coverage Watch out for Exclusions Workmen’s Compensation Types of Coverage for Photographers and Videographers

Insurance Many insurance companies for different things including van, bike, breakdown, pet, landlord, business, income and caravan insurance.

This demonstrates how many types of insurance there are however it is not relevant to music video insurance.

There is insurance for different areas of a music video therefore you have to distinguish between which ones are useful for you. Weakness of this is you may not get a certain type of insurance however you may require it when an accident occurs. Things insurance is required for. Could end up spending more money on insurance rather than the music video itself.

This shows I am in the right place but it’s not really useful as the pay isn’t there.
