[sr-dev] licensing of videos and images from Kamailio World?

There are various pages about the videos from Kamailio World but nothing
there about the license...
There is a fair use doctrine that people can generally use a screenshot
or extract from copyrighted material but it is better to have some
explicit statement there.
Could anybody please clarify this and update the web page?
There are two details required:
1. Who owns the copyright? By default, the name of the volunteer(s) who
recorded the videos or if the work was done under contract, was
copyright transferred to Kamailio, Asipto or anybody else?
2. Which license? The CC BY SA 4.0 license might be a good choice
consistent with existing Kamailio licensing:
BY: must credit the original work (Kamailio or volunteer)
SA: (ShareAlike) - derivative works must also be CC BY SA (viral effect,
like the GPL used for Kamailio itself)
I suspect that many speakers are motivated to use their videos in some
commercial context and may not be keen to apply the No Derivatives (ND)
or Non-Commercial (NC) constraints from Creative Commons.
Thanks to those who produced and shared these works for the community.
