Those wishing to exhibit a film in a space reserved through Event Services must produce documentation that a public performance license has been obtained. There are two options available for a legal screening of any copyrighted film or motion picture.
A number of companies hold film rights and can issue a public performance license. The University Centers has contacts for these companies and will assist in obtaining a public performance license for a film presentation. Student organizations should contact the Activities, Involvement and Leadership office; Event Services will assist academic departments, administrative offices and external clients. The license must be in the possession of the organization, office or department prior to the exhibition date.
A fee will most likely be associated with any and all public performance film licensing. Anyone wishing to exhibit a motion picture in a venue scheduled by Event Services must produce documentation that a public performance license has been obtained.
Willful infringement is a Federal crime that carries a maximum sentence of up to five years in jail and/or a $250,000 fine. Even inadvertent infringement is subject to substantial civil damages. Not only is the event sponsor responsible, the venue itself is also held responsible. Colleges and universities are the most frequent violators and are closely monitored.
To be eligible for an educational exemption, there are six points to be met and every screening must meet all six points.
