Does classroom viewing of our DVDs and videos constitute a public performance?


No. Face to face viewing of a lawfully purchased or rented work in a classroom is not considered a public performance. (Section 110(1) of Title 17 of the United States Code) However, if a University group wants to show one of the library’s DVDs or videos in an entertainment context, that would be a public performance and would require payment of public performance fees.
