COPYRIGHT AND USAGE INFORMATION:
PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS vs. HOME VIDEO:
Public Performance Rights (PPR) are the legal rights to show a film in public. According to U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, United States Code, Section 110), a public performance is any screening of a film that occurs outside of the home, or at any place where people are gathered who are not family members, such as in a school, library, auditorium, classroom or meeting room.
Unless DVDs are sold or rented with public performance rights or are licensed for public performance, they should be considered home use only and should be restricted to private showings in the home to a “normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances.”
STREAMING / ONLINE ACCESS INFORMATION:
Victory Films offers streaming licenses in perpetuity after the purchase of the film at full list price. If you would like to stream the film into your classroom or within your company, you must purchase the DSL (digital site license).
When you purchase the DSL, you will be sent a DVD, as well as an e-mail with a link and password so that you can download the film from our Vimeo account.
TERMS OF DSL:
The licensing institution must purchase a fully licensed copy of the film(s) for their permanent collection at list price.
The licensing institution can encode a digital file in any file format. Content may not be altered or edited in any manner. Digitized material is for synchronous (live) or asynchronous streaming (multiple user, video-on-demand format) only and content may not be copied to any other format or used for any purpose not outlined in this agreement.
The licensing institution must guarantee a password-protected environment without the ability of a user to download the program. Licensees may then deliver the contents of these files via password-protected digital streaming only to registered students, accredited researchers, faculty and staff of that institution and the occasional or walk-in user.
The licensing institution may video stream content only for students in an educational setting (i.e. for non-paying audiences only).
ALL PPR AND DSL ARE IN PERPETUITY.
Duplication, reproduction, alteration, television broadcast, cablecast, loaning for a fee, leasing, sub-licensing to others or use for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited without written permission from Victory Films.
