  • Classroom Rights allow unlimited use in face-to-face classroom situations for the life of the media, restricted to a single campus or location. Please note that this license doesn't include public screenings or digital transmission of any kind
  • Public Performance Rights (PPR), which allow colleges, universities, libraries, and non-profit organizations to exhibit to groups of 100 or fewer individuals where admission is not charged, valid for the life of the DVD, and restricted to a single geographical campus or place of presentation.
  • Digital Site Licenses (DSL), which allow an institution to locally host our films on a password protected server and provide unlimited streaming to their community for the life of the digital file.
