Forms for the YSM YouTube channel
We gather metadata about the video from clients (you) to describe the media for YouTube. Metadata is the text that describes the video--the title, description, tags, keywords, etc. All the metadata required for posting your video to YouTube is covered in our Video Metadata Form. We will need one Metadata Form per video you would like to post online.
Speaker's Permission Form
We confirm with you that the major speakers (or lecturer) in the video have signed the Yale Speaker’s Permission Form. This includes Yale faculty, students, and staff. We cannot distribute the content without this permission. We cannot post a video online till the speaker has signed this form. If the speaker has questions or concerns about the form, please alert us, and we can connect them with Yale’s Office of General Counsel (OGC).
The speakers can return this form to your office, and you can fax a copy to our office at (203) 785-4327. If it is a scanned image, please forward the form to Michael Fitzsousa at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the speaker has already signed a permissions form for this video that is not the Yale Speaker’s Permission form, you can forward that to our office and we can review with OGC that it is acceptable.
