To provide online access, we will host a service on bfi.org.uk that identifies all British works and shows users where they can be viewed – by linking to the digital platforms of individual archives, by displaying links to cinema programmes UK-wide, and linking to DVD catalogues and VoD services. Some titles will be available as paid-for material the public can rent or buy via bfi.org.uk. We will programme BFI-branded channels for adoption across major VoD services. These channels will build on the BFI’s programming expertise and bring together a rich selection of films from different rightsowners including the BFI, and will primarily be driven by the digitised collection of 10,000 British titles. We will also host many titles for free on the BFI’s YouTube channel, significantly increasing the volume of titles available.
In the case of a broadcast made after the commencement of the 1956 Act, the copyright in a broadcast programme expires 50 years from the end of the year in which it is broadcast: section 14(2), Copyright Act 1956. Repeating such a broadcast does not extend the period of copyright, whether the repeat is during or after the 50 year copyright period: section 14(3), Copyright Act 1956.
Cinematographic or audiovisual works
1. The principal director of a cinematographic or audiovisual work shall be considered as its author or one of its authors. Member States shall be free to designate other co-authors.
