Reprint/Rebroadcast Permissions

All requests concerning permission to reprint photographs and to rebroadcast video footage should be made to the Communications Manager.


The Department of Computer Science has a large selection of photographs depicting current and past research projects and other activities. Many of these photographs are the property of the department. Others are the property of professional photographers and may not be reprinted in non-departmental publications without first obtaining permission from the photographer who holds the copyright. Depending on the publication, some photographers may request a small fee. There are also photographs that the department has purchased the rights to from the professional photographer who took them. In all cases, it is advisable to contact the Communications Manager to be sure that the correct procedure is followed.


Some of the department’s research projects include video clips on their web pages. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of a video clip at a higher quality than may be available on the web, please contact the Communications Manager.
