Do we always have to pay a licensing fee to watch a film on campus?


No. Films that are viewed in classrooms for educational purposes and not-for-profit fall under s29.5 of the Copyright Act, meaning these films can be viewed without paying a licensing fee. If certain conditions are met, the viewing of your film may fall under an educational exception and can be viewed on campus without paying a fee. Please complete the form above and the Copyright Advisor will determine if your viewing falls under an educational exception.
