Resources for Universities & Colleges

Understanding License Terms

Educational Public Performance Rights (PPR) vary from distributor to distributor, so we wanted to create this resource page to outline our exact terms for our educational licenses. We will look at the outline of the license terms here, but please feel free to request a blank license agreement via email if you need to see the more details.

University & College license with PPR

This license covers the physical media, DVD or blu-ray, purchase of a film. As outlined in the contract, the license is life of format and allows for all university affiliates (affiliates defined as current students, staff, and faculty) to view the film without limitation on audience size or venue type. Use of the film in classrooms for teaching, student organizations hosting a viewing for university affiliates, or playing the film on a campus theater for university affiliates would all necessitate the purchase of a PPR license.

Digital Site License (DSL)

This license covers the digital purchase of a film. As outlined in the contract, the license is life of format and allows for all university affiliates (affiliates defined as current students, staff, and faculty) to view the film without limitation on audience size or venue type. Use of the film in classrooms for teaching, student organizations hosting a viewing for university affiliates, or playing the film on a campus theater for university affiliates would all necessitate the purchase of a PPR license. 

This format also allows the university or college to host the film on a secure, password protected platform like Kanopy, Blackboard, etc. Please confirm via email what platform you plan on hosting your DSL to ensure the film file is adequately protected.

Files are delivered via password protected downloadable .mp4 link. Please securely download the file within one week of purchase.
