AFTRS Open Copyright Policy

Open students own the copyright in any original films, sound recordings, images, scripts, drawings or other materials they create during any Open courses (Projects). For Projects created by teams of students, copyright may be shared by each student in the team.

If students wish to post their Projects online (for example, on YouTube or Facebook), they should ensure that they do not use any materials that infringe another person’s copyright. If students wish to use such materials, they should seek appropriate clearances from the copyright owner.

Further information on copyright can be found in the guidelines distributed during their courses or by visiting
