Permission is now required from British Eventing's Chief Executive for the use of a head or bridle camera in the cross-country phase of eventing.
In a new agreement, riders must assign all rights to footage recorded to BE, which becomes the sole owner and controller of such rights. A copy of all recorded footage must be provided on request.
Competitors are allowed to use their footage for personal use but are not allowed to sell or licence it to any third party or grant anyone permission to use the footage. Personal use includes uploading onto social media sites and a website controlled by the competitor. Footage uploaded must be accompanied by the statement, “All rights reserved by British Eventing”.
British Eventing has the right to require the competitor to remove any footage from use in any media for reasons including the inclusion of illegal, offensive, or defamatory content, or if it is considered detrimental to the image of the sport of eventing in general. Riders must also make sure that the headcam and any associated equipment is securely attached, and that the use of such items does not compromise other safety equipment.
