3.4.4 Resultant IPR and neighbouring rights
Problems over copyright and performing rights may arise subsequently when a lecturer moves to a post in another institution and wishes to use the same or similar material if the copyright in the recording is now owned by the original employer.

Public lectures given at LSE Material: video and audio recordings from public lectures made available to public, possibly through streaming Issues:
As above, especially third party rights and performing rights are matters for contract regarding ownership of lecture (literary work) and agreement to permit communication to the public.
Best practice set out here does not cover publication in conventional literature or use in public media such as television. Further guidance is available from the British Medical Association and the General Medical Council should the intention be to use the images in public media. This section does not cover commercial images or images from medical services.
In this context, medical images include:
Copies of video or audio recordings
Photographs and other visual images of patients.
There are three main considerations to be addressed and adhered to in respect of medical images, namely:
