ICERM records all talks given during workshops and all public lectures by default, with the intention of publishing the videos on ICERM’s public-facing website. ICERM will not publish any video recording without first receiving a signed release form from the speaker(s).
The terms provided in the release form were developed by Brown’s legal counsel and are non-negotiable.
ICERM recognizes that there are rare occasions where a speaker’s employer specifically prohibits them from giving recorded talks. In these circumstances, ICERM will not record the speaker as long as ICERM staff is notified at least 24 hours in advance.
Should a speaker explicitly refuse to sign a release form, ICERM will delete the recording of the speaker’s talk.
If ICERM does not receive a signed release form within six months of a recorded talk, ICERM will delete the recording. ICERM may honor requests for limited release delays for cases such as pre-published materials in a presentation. These will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Interested speakers should consult with ICERM staff and/or the directorate.
