If your student organization is interested in showing a film, it will be necessary for you to purchase or acquire a public performance license. The fee to purchase a public performance license generally runs around $100 - $400 depending on the film. There are several different agencies that coordinate the licensing process. More information about licensing agencies is available in the UCI Law Office of Student Life.
It is a violation of Federal law to exhibit pre-recorded video cassettes and DVDs beyond the scope of your private room or apartment - regardless of whether or not admission is charged. Ownership of a pre-recorded video cassette or DVD does not constitute ownership of a copyright. Several schools and student groups have been successfully sued for using DVDs and videos without permission. The use of copyrighted videocassettes or DVDs outside of home use requires a public performance license.
"Even performances in 'semi-public' places such as clubs, lodges, factories, summer camps, and schools are 'public performances' subject to copyright control" (Senate Report No. 94-473,p60; House Report No. 94-1476,p64.)
Federal laws include limited exceptions for educational uses of copyrighted material (for instance, use of portions of copyrighted materials in connection with a class for viewing only by instructors and students). Please consult the Office of Student Life to learn more about this exception if you are contemplating a use which you believe may fall within this educational exception.
