Why do I need a license to show a movie at my church, school or at any other public venue?
Because it’s the right thing to do and it’s the law. The Copyright Act requires it – Read More Here. Title 17 of the United States Code . Penalties for hosting public showings without the proper licensing can be quite significant even if you aren’t intentionally trying to circumvent the law Section 506. The only variance is for non-profit schools whereby they can use films without a license under limited “teaching” situation. For specific requirements, please reference The Copyright Act of 1976, Public Law No. 94-553, 90 stat 2541: Title 17; Section 110(i), or consult your copyright attorney.
