Okay, I will take the quiz! LOL Let me know if I'm doing okay...

a. You need PPR because this is not face-to-face.
b. If by screen, you mean the entire film, since this is a conference and all are invited, you still need PPR. So you can only show clips.
c. This is outside academia, so I'm not sure. It still sounds like face-to-face, because you are teaching a specific number of people.
d. It's okay, it's face-to-face instruction

Professor plans to screen a film for face-to-face teaching, but happens to move the screening to a large auditorium and invite students from the entire department to the screening. Other than an intro, no instruction happens at the screening.
Professor organizes scholarly conference and will be screening films as part of the conference. The conference is organized by a graduate class, but attendees come from throughout the U.S.
HR unit at nonprofit educational institution wants to screen videos to groups of employees to raise cultural awareness.
Social work students want to screen a film to a group of high-school students they are working with as part of a practicum project.

I seem to have a lot to say today!

So, just to be clear: the *only* way that you can show a film at a college fillm festival, for example, where you do *not* charge entrance fee, OR, for example, on a scholarly panel discussing film which is open to the whole campus and perhaps to the public is *if* you have public performance rights. If you don't have PPR, you cannot show under fair use law because you are not involved in face-to-face instruction. Sorry I had to be real specific but everyone seems to have a different take on it.



I am going to start asking our cataloging people to enter a note abuot PPR in the record because I don't think they even notice that when acquiring a title.

This is a slightly different take on the current subject, public
performance. Below is a link to an IUPUI web page that seems to
indicate that non-classroom campus video showings may be permissible.
The specific phrase in the second example is:

"The performance is part of a teaching activity, however it does not
have to be part of a regular course; therefore, host a related
discussion forum or arrange for a student or instructor to lead an
educational program related to the film."

Does anyone else agree that this use is acceptable in the university?
