If you are acting on behalf of a school, university, library or community organization (e.g. local music association) and plan to screen the discs in a public setting and are not charging admission, you must purchase the Educational Discs.
Educational Discs may NOT be purchased and screened, if: 1) You plan to charge admission to the screening; or 2) You plan to screen the discs in connection with a fundraiser
Public Performance Rights (PPR) allow screenings of the Discs for educational purposes. PPR permit screenings in an educational setting when NO admission is charged. PPR documentation is included with Educational Discs purchased from the official online Store. Regular home-use-only disc sets purchased here which are not accompanied by PPR documentation do NOT carry Public Performance Rights, and are for private-home use only. Public screening of those discs for an audience is a violation of copyright and is illegal.
Why are Educational Discs more expensive than the home-use-only discs for sale here?
Public Performance Rights have significant additional value since they are good for the life of the media and allow many more people to view the media than the home-use-only version. By purchasing the PPR one time, your organization can hold an unlimited number of screenings for your students and members, as long as no admission is charged.
I’d like to invite someone associated with the film to speak at my screening.
