Entertainment Use Rights:
The Entertainment Use license allows broader use rights outside the ordinary classroom context:
- The films can be shown anywhere on campus. (ACF: Only indoor movie events are covered.)
- The film can be shown by someone other than an instructor, e.g. a student club, a staff training event.
- The audience can include students and staff, with some members of the public present (however, see the limitation below).
Please note the following limitations on Entertainment Use:
- The event must be free to attend -- no cost or cover charge. Showing films at charity fund-raisers is allowed, but only when the cost is purely by donation
- The license covers only films that have been released for rental and home purchase; films still in theatrical release are not covered
- The primary audience of the event must be members of the institution. Event advertising must be limited to media targeted at the university/college and its students and staff. In the case of print advertising, the advertisements may only appear in campus media (e.g. a student newspaper) and not in general community newspapers.
