Fair Treatment and Informed Choice for Contributors of User-Generated Video

Evans, Michael; Kerlin, Lianne; Jones, Rhianne

When a member of the public makes a video and sends it to a broadcaster, in the hopes it will be used in professional content, are they making an informed choice regarding their own rights and those of third parties whose activity is featured? Are professionals inadvertently exploiting contributors or treating them unfairly, and are the terms and conditions that contributors are asked to agree to reasonable? This position paper reports on discussions with potential UGV contributors and uncovers low expectations in terms of communication with and acknowledgement from professionals, and of low levels of understanding of the, often complex, issues around rights.
