Seek Public Performance Rights

If you wish to show a video or other media outside of the context of class instruction (e.g. to a group, organization, or the general public; with or without admission charges), this constitutes a 'public performance.'

This type of showing is subject to different pricing and copyright regulations and may require licensing the film for use. Contact Educational Media Technologies at (231) 995-1070 for information and guidance on seeking Public Performance Rights.
