About Cast@CBS

Cast@CBS is an archive and dissemination system for audiovisual resources at CBS and comprises two websites, one public and one with restricted access.

The purpose of Cast@CBS is to

· make a technical platform available to CBS staff for the purpose of archiving and recycling audiovisual teaching and information resources for both external (e.g. www.cbs.dk) and in-house (e.g. CBSShare) use.

· support and facilitate positive development in audiovisual communication.

· professionalise audiovisual resource management.

· improve retrieval of audiovisual resources.

The system is in many ways similar to YouTube© and Vimeo©. Two important differences, however, are CBS´ absolute control of video and data contents and the direct integration with other CBS systems.

Regulations and copyright issues

As content provider it is your responsibility to make sure that everything that you publish meets all legal requirements.

As a general rule you should always obtain explicit permission from everybody involved, not just for the actual recording but also in terms of the context in which it will be used. Very mundane recordings can potentially change character completely when used for marketing or branding purposes. Not everybody likes to be associated with something that can come across as advertising.

Upload is only available to CBS staff and only with a valid CBS e-mail address.

All submissions need to be accompanied by a signed form A and/or B. Publication is not possible without these forms.

Use of and upload to the database implies acceptance of the following regulations:

Only items relevant to CBS, including teaching, research, and information materials, may be uploaded. Videos and other materials of a private nature may not be uploaded and will be removed immediately and without further notice.

All content will be screened by moderators before publications and any item not XXX with the database purpose will be rejected or deleted.

We respect intellectual property rights. This means that you retain all your rights when uploading to the Cast@CBS. At the same you give us the right to disseminate your materials to others.

You need to respect intellectual property rights. This means that you do not use others works, whether music, pictures, videos etc. without obtaining explicit permission from the copyright holder.

The copyright holder retains all rights and obligations vis-à-vis uploaded content. This means that the copyright holder has the right to dispose of and may withdraw at any time uploaded content. It also means that the copyright holder carries full responsibility that all copyright laws are observed.

CBS does not accept responsibility for any intentional or accidental publication of materials not observing current legislation.

Content infringing on somebody else´s copyright will removed upon request by the copyright holder or 3rd party or if deemed appropriate by Cast@CBS.

Legislation in brief

Section 3 of the Act on Processing of Personal Data (Persondataloven) defines personal data as “[a]ny kind of data about an identified or identifiable physical person (the person registered)”. Videos and other pictorial materials are therefore covered by this act.

Section 6, subsection 1 lists the conditions under which data may be processed. The relevant provisions are section 6, subsection 1, no. 1, according to which processing is permitted if consented to by the registered person as well as section 6, subsection 7, no. 7 which permits processing based on a balancing of the consideration of the person registered and the holder of the information.

According to the According to the Danish Data Protection Agency (Datatilsynet) a determination of the legality of publication is always based on a specific assessment. An initially assessment will be made by the person responsible for the data.

Whereas the publication of portraits as a general rule requires the consent of the person portrayed, situational pictures, i.e. pictures in which the leitmotif is not person but an activity, as a general rule does not.

The assessment will be a holistic one and will look at the nature of the picture, the context, and the purpose of publication.

The main thing is that the person portrayed cannot reasonably feel exhibited, exploited or violated, e.g. for marketing or commercial purposes.
