AIDSvideos.org does not yet have a formal written license that expresses the above terms and conditions for doing a translation, but it is our intent to identify or create such a license. When we do, we will make that license available on our web site (or link to it) and make all of our scripts available for translation under the terms of that license.

Commercial Use

AIDSvideos.org does NOT grant advance permission for commercial uses of the "AIDSvideos.org Scripts" and/or the "AIDSvideos.org videos" other than to the broadcast and cable television operators noted above.

Derivative Works

AIDSvideos.org does NOT grant advance permission to make derivative works from the "AIDSvideos.org Scripts" and/or the "AIDSvideos.org videos." This is principally because of the possibility that HIV denialists or others acting in bad faith might attempt to create derivative works that are scientifically and/or medically inaccurate.

However, there may be situations where a translator wishes to make minor modifications. For example, new discoveries may have been published in Tier 1 scientific or medical journals since the script was written, or best practice recommendations from official organizations such as the WHO, UNAIDS, NIH, or CDC may have been updated. A translator may wish to make reasonable additions or changes to ensure that the translation is appropriate for the target language or culture. There may also be situations where a person wishes to create a scientifically and medically accurate derivative work that is significantly different in scope, goal, or audience than the original work.

If you wish to create a scientifically and medically accurate derivative work, contact AIDSvideos.org and explain what you want to do. It is our intent to grant permission for the creation of scientifically and medically accurate derivative works made in good faith, but explicit advance permission must be obtained from AIDSvideos.org for each and every such derivative work.

Permission to Link to AIDSvideos.org Videos, and Occasional Updates to AIDSvideos.org Videos

Permission is granted for anyone to link to AIDSvideos.org videos from their own web site. Be aware that AIDSvideos.org may update our own original videos from time to time. When we do this, the URL of the video on Google Video and the Open Media Network will change, so any links directly to the older version of the video will break at that time.
