As long as the program intended to be viewed online ('communicated', under the Copyright Act 1968) is a copy of a program made under Section 113P of the Copyright Act 1968, commonly known as "the New Statutory License".

Further detailed information on this can be found on the Teaching staff: Using radio and television broadcasts (Copyright and legal re-use) webpage (please see the link below).

The New Statutory License allows for the reproduction (copying) and communication for educational purposes of broadcasts from Australian television and radio channels. As long as the copy that is communicated online was made under the license (i.e.: recorded from television), and the communication is taking place only for educational purposes, then this action is permissible.

Instructors need to make students aware that what they are viewing is copyright material and must include the following notices with the copy made available online. The notice must be placed so that viewers of the program could reasonably be expected to read it prior to accessing the program online. 'Date of broadcast' should be available from the Library resource your are using as your source to create the online version:

Made for the University of Notre Dame Australia's educational purposes under Section 113P, Copyright Act 1968.
Date of broadcast: [dd/mm/yyyy]
Date this copy made: [dd/mm/yyyy]
