It is unlawful to falsely claim copyright or other rights in NASA material.
NASA shall in no way be liable for any costs, expenses, claims or demands arising out of use of NASA's cassettes and photographs by a recipient or a recipient's distributees.
NASA personnel are not authorized to sign indemnity or hold
harmless statements, releases from copyright infringement, or

Photographs are not protected by copyright unless noted. If
copyrighted, permission should be obtained from the copyright owner
prior to use. If not copyrighted, photographs may be reproduced and
distributed without further permission from NASA. If a recognizable
person appears in a photograph, use for commercial purposes may
infringe a right of privacy or publicity and permission should be
obtained from the recognizable person.
Audiotape recordings are not protected by copyright unless noted. A
cassette may be excerpted or reproduced and distributed, without
further permission from NASA. However, use of a portion or
segment of an audiotape, such as talent, narration or music, may
infringe a right of publicity or copyright and permission should be
obtained from the source.
Video and Motion Picture Recordings:
Videotape and Motion Picture recordings are not protected by
copyright unless noted. A recording may be reproduced and
distributed, without further permission from NASA. Copyrighted
music or footage, which is incorporated in a production, may not be
used unless permission is obtained from the copyright owner. While in
most instances using non-copyrighted segments is permitted, use for
commercial purposes of a portion or segment containing talent or a
recognizable person may infringe a right of publicity and permission
should be obtained from the talent or recognizable person. These
guidelines also apply to NASA's "live television" satellite broadcasts.
