Neil Dempster's Recording Policy (audio or video)

Neil Dempster will wow your audience!One of the more complex areas of the law is the field of intellectual property rights pertaining to the recording and distribution/sale of a professional speaker's presentation. Questions abound as a result:


  • Do I need the speaker's consent to produce an audio CD or MP3 of the presentation?
  • What about a video DVD?
  • Can I provide copies to the attendees?
  • Can I sell the recording to members of our association, other interested parties, or on our web site?


At the risk of over-simplification, the law boils down to this—recording a speaker without his or her consent is illegal (in addition to being unethical).


With that being said, let us first say that we are honored that you would like to record Neil Dempster's presentation. To eliminate any concerns you may have about copyright violations, here are the parameters whereby Neil can be recorded:

Note: All agreements must be received prior to the actual date of the event being recorded. To maintain high quality standards, all recordings must be produced and duplicated professionally. Labels must clearly show the name of your organization, Neil Dempster as the speaker, the title of Neil's presentation, and the copyright notice, " Clearview Performance Systems, Inc., reproduced by permission." We require a copy of the raw, unedited video—because of the large file sizes, we will ship a hard drive to the video representative for file transfer.


Suggestions: When recording, place microphones in the audience to pick up audience responses.
