The Aimsun trainer’s presentation is not subject to copyright protection because it is not fixed in any tangible medium of expression from which it can be perceived, reproduced or otherwise communicated. However, the Aimsun trainer has a privacy interest in the unauthorized recording of their oral lecture presentation, and therefore the recording of their oral presentation is also prohibited and would be subject to a privacy infringement action brought by the Aimsun trainer.
