My question is about video recordings. Who owns the right to a video recording? Is it the person recording or the person being recorded?

  • If someone writes a speech, and delivers a speech, that is a creative work. It is copyrighted as soon as it is fixed in a tangible medium, such as notes that the speaker used in order to deliver the speech. If someone records that speech by simply pointing a camera at the speaker and recording it, then that act is arguably a derivative work of the speaker's speech and would need permission from the speaker. – Brandin Nov 22 '19 at 6:13
