Where do these interviews come from?
These interviews come from the interviewer
themselves who may have worked in the media and has retained their
How do they become mp3?
First of all the material is transferred from their original source
(cassette/mini Disc/Reel to Reel DAT) onto MP3 file. Then they get
tweaked to remove the hiss (if required) and the levels are enhanced
to improve the quality.
Are they copyrighted?
Yes they may be, however you can download a MP3 which was
transferred from the
original source. If you are using these for academic or for
private use they are free to be used and do not incur copyright
infringement. However, any re-broadcast or re-publishing of
these works without permission may be deemed copyright infringement.
Interviews Archive is not responsible if you decide to re-broadcast
or re-publishing this material without obtaining legal clearance
from the owner or the parties involved. We can provide you
with contact details of the interviewer/owner yet we do not claim
any of this is
'cleared' material per say.
I used to
work for a newspaper/magazine and have kept all my interviews as back up
cassette. Can I host these files on your site?
It depends, if you were employed directly by the newspaper or if you
were a freelancer. If you were employed directly by the
newspaper all work completed may be owned by the employer. In
freelancing, stories or articles are sold to the newspaper yet the
research/notes/interviews may not be owned by the newspaper which
publishes the story. Its also important to check or read over
any contracts / agreements you may have signed before submitting any
material to our site which may conflict with Interviews Archive
hosting the material.
I have some audio interviews would
you be interested in hosting these?
Yes. We are trying to gather interviews from people working
in Music, Film, Sports, Writers & Entertainment fields on this
site. It's best to use the contact page and give us
information as to how you can upload to this site.
