Video Testimony Submission Notice and Disclaimer

Fairfax County will accept video testimony for consideration during Board public hearings. Video testimony must adhere to the same expectation for in-person presentations (three minutes given to individuals and organizations for testimony). Comments must be limited to issues relevant to the public hearing matter for which you are testifying, and speakers must deliver their comments with the decorum and respect appropriate to the conduct of the public's business. Out-of-order remarks or other indecorous conduct will not be accepted. Speakers may only testify once during the public hearings; speakers may not testify via video and in person. Video testimony will be reviewed prior to public hearings and videos not meeting these standards will not be played during Board public hearings.

By submitting video testimony, you agree that the County may distribute it as the County deems necessary or appropriate, including via broadcast and web-streaming to general public audiences. You grant Fairfax County an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, and broadcast the video. You represent and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, and permissions to grant the County those rights, and that you have secured all necessary permissions and releases from any person and for any copyrighted material contained in your video. 

You agree that you will hold Fairfax County harmless for any claims for infringement or violation of rights resulting from the use of your video.
