What is an Educational DVD?
An Educational DVD, also known as an Institutional DVD, comes with Public Performance Rights, which allow an organization to screen the film for an audience, as long as no admission is charged, for the life of the media.
What are Public Performance Rights?
Public Performance Rights (PPR) allow screenings of DVDs for educational purposes. PPR permit screenings in a classroom or library, or for a group outside the home when no admission is charged. PPR are included with DVDs purchased from Good Docs (gooddocs.net). DVDs purchased from home video retailers or through anyone other than Good Docs do NOT carry Public Performance Rights, and screening those DVDs for an audience is illegal. DVDs from those locations may be screened for private home-only use, unless Public Performance Rights are purchased separately or an open showing is arranged.
Do I need an Institutional copy?
If you are inquiring on behalf of a school, university, library, gallery, or any community center (JCC, Girl Scout troops, etc.) and are not charging admission, you must purchase an Educational/ Institutional copy of SOMEWHERE BETWEEN.
If you plan to charge admission to the screening, you do not qualify for an Educational/Institutional copy. If you are not charging admission, but you plan to use the screening as a fundraiser, you also do not qualify. In these cases, please contact Good Docs at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a non-theatrical screening of the film.
