This speaker release agreement allows the EPS to host and archive the EuroPython conference videos and presentations for future years. It is intended to be placed on the talk submission page and made part of the submission form. Alternatively, the speaker can provide a signed paper form during the conference. However, a web form is the preferred way of getting approval to reduce organizational overhead.
By submitting this talk submission web form, submitter (“the speaker”) grants the EuroPython Society (“the society”) the non-exclusive right to record, reproduce, stream, transcribe and distribute the speaker's presentation (“the presentation”) in electronic format via the World Wide Web, as well as the right to migrate or convert the presentation to any medium or format for the purpose of preservation and/or continued distribution.
The society acknowledges that this is a non-exclusive license; any copyrights in the presentation remain with the speaker or other copyright holder and subsequent uses of the submitted material by that person(s) are not restricted by this license. The speaker also grants the society any associated rights necessary to record, reproduce, transcribe and distribute audio, video, images, or excerpts of the presentation.
The speaker represents that the presentation covered by this license is their original work and that they have the right to grant this license to the society. The speaker further represents that the presentation does not, to the best of their knowledge, infringe upon any third-party’s copyright.
If this presentation is based upon work that has been sponsored or supported by any agency or organization other than the society, the speaker represents that they have fulfilled any right of review or other obligation required by contract or agreement with the supporting entity.
The society will make the presentation available to the public using an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0) license accompanied by a copyright statement. You can find details on this license here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/
