What are Public Screening & Educational Viewing Rights?

A public screening or educational viewing is any projection or playback of a film that occurs outside of one's personal home and beyond an audience of one's personal family. Screenings held for and publicized to audiences in sites such as churches, schools, libraries, museums, for-profit or non-profit organizations, or other community centers are public screenings, even if no admission is charged.

Single Use Viewing Rights (Example Single-Use Licensing Contract)

If youʼll show the film publicly on one single date only, please choose this option. These rights cover a one-time public or educational viewing of the film. Admission fees or suggested donations can't be charged, but you're welcome to accept at-will donations. Viewing rights are non-transferable (i.e. you may not sell or lend the DVD to another group or individual). Viewing Rights include a single copy of the DVD, which may not be duplicated. Additional copies must be purchased.

Multi-Use and Ongoing Viewing Rights (Example Multi-Use and Ongoing Licensing Contract)

If you wish to show the film publicly on multiple dates, or if you are a librarian or educator intending to use the film on an ongoing basis in your classroom or for circulation in your library, please choose this option. These rights cover multiple public viewings of the film. Admission fees or suggested donations can't be charged, but you're welcome to accept at-will donations. With the exception of public or university librarians lending the film to authorized cardholders, viewing rights are non-transferable (i.e. you may not sell or lend the DVD to another group or individual.)
