We require a license from the host submitting a show, as by default any
work is considered to be "Copyright all rights reserved'.
We accept shows posted under any Creative Commons license, GNU Free
Documentation License, anything in the public domain, and anything under
a FLOSS software license.
We do not post other copyrighted content, even if it is under a "fair
We *do* allow shows "by arranged permission", where the host has
explicit permission to submit the show. We have never had a show
submitted under this clause.
I am now proposing that we remove that option, as even though that would
give us permission to host it it causes problems for our listeners.
Our podcast is played in public spaces. As the content is Creative
Commons they don't need to pay national license authorities. If we
play content that is not Creative Commons then they do.
It also would prevent anyone from knowing the rights they have without
knowing the exact permission attached to that individual show, and been
able to interpret what it would mean to them if they reused it.
This clause makes the whole question ambiguous because we flag our feed
Creative Commons but the individual show would not be.
To be safe we would need to remove these shows from the main feed, and
make it so that you would only get these special shows if you explicitly
opt in for them. I don't see how this would benefit anyone as no one
would be subscribed to this feed.
< If you are redistributing under another Creative Commons License or by
arranged permission please make note of the restrictions when you upload
your show. We can then signal that, so that others who redistribute HPR
content can filter your show out.

public domain, or FLOSS software license, then please signal that when
you upload your show. We do not post other copyrighted content, even if
it is made available under fair use, or by arranged permission.
