Lisle School District 202 Tries Restricting Use Of Meeting Videos –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On December 7, 2016


Lisle Community Unit School District 202 has attempted to claim copyright on its School Board meeting videos (click here).

Those videos are a public record and cannot be copyrighted (court case here) (article in the Municipal Minute here) or otherwise have any restrictions on their use. It equates to telling us we cannot publish emails, contracts, or meeting minutes, etc.  It cannot happen.

As soon as we can find time, we will take portions of it and provide some opinionated commentary for short videos with our comments embedded in it.

Here is the October 28, 2016 School Board Meeting I downloaded directly from their website (watch it below or download your own copy from us):


I also sent a FOIA request for a copy of it:

    Just another illegal stunt to control public objection to wrongdoing of a public body. The real purpose of this action by Lisle District 202 is to give everyone (particularly members of the Illinois Legislature) a real life example of another way scoundrels in office try to cover up their improper doings. They need a lawsuit.
