We often get questions and requests in reference to using audio from
our broadcasts for various other purposes, including use as the sound
track for video productions, use in commercial radio and television
broadcasts, use on community or public TV programs, etc.
Broadcasts on the Roller Derby Radio Network™ are copyrighted by the
RDRN™, however they are published by the RDRN under a Creative Commons
License. Basically this means you are welcome to use the audio from our
broadcasts for any non-commercial purpose as long as the audio is
attributed to the RDRN. In a broadcast situation (within a
broadcast radio sportscast for example) you can meet this requirement
simply by saying "audio courtesy of the Roller Derby Radio
Network". If necessary you may simply say "courtesy of the
RDRN". In a produced video somewhere in the credits you must
attribute the audio to the RDRN. If it's a packaged CD, DVD, etc
the packaging must include a credit to the RDRN for the audio, and we
appreciate our link being included somewhere. Video published to You
Tube may include our audio as long as somewhere in the video, either in
screen text or audio we are given credit. Same thing for use on the
web. Feel free to link to our Spreaker page for audio, use edited
clips of our audio on your web page, internet radio broadcasts,
podcasts, etc as long as the RDRN gets a credit mention.
If you are involved in a commercial venture -- selling DVD's of bout
videos for a profit for example, and you want to use RDRN audio please
contact the RDRN for arrangements.
Basically if you're making money
with a product using our work we will require a teeny piece of the
pie. If you are not selling a product, we simply require

that) is to broadcast live roller derby the best way we know how, and
to sell enough sponsorships and merchandise to cover costs.
Our broadcasters get paid and we buy a lot of gasoline! Should income
exceed costs it is our intent to expand our geographic
coverage and increase the number of broadcasts. The ultimate goal
is to spread the Derby Love far and wide and not lose our asses in the
