Open University Licensed Off-air Recording Scheme
The University has a licence from Open University Worldwide Limited which permits, within specified terms, the off-air recording of Open University programmes for educational purposes.
Under the terms of the licence we are required to keep an up-to-date log of all Open University records made, including the:
1. programme number
2. programme title
3. date recorded
4. number of copies held
5. date erased (if applicable)
Your Head of Department/School will be asked on an annual basis to complete and submit a log sheet. The log sheet should list all Open University recordings held/erased by members of staff within the Department/School over the period 1 July to 30 June and must include the information required under the terms of the licence (1-5 above).
Please note that any recordings held of copyright-expired programmes should be erased and entered as such on the log sheet submitted by your Head of Department/School. Copyright-expired programmes may be purchased from Open University Worldwide Limited.
We are required to make an annual collected return for the whole University for the period 1 July to 30 June of any Open University recordings either made or still held and shall use the information provided by your Head of Department/School for completion of this return. Upon receipt of the return, the Open University Worldwide Limited will charge the University for each recording held.
