Faculty Guide to Streaming Video

Answers to common questions about streaming video.

Public Performance Rights

Public Performance Rights (PPR) granted by copyright holders allow institutions to screen films outside of the classroom or library.  PPR is generally available for an additional fee but often comes bundled with educational DVDs or digital site licenses.  PPR must be acquired if screenings are open to the general public, even if the screening is free of charge to attendees.  

If you’re planning a campus event that includes a film screening, contact Michele McKenzie for assistance.  The Media Center can assist you with the necessary research to obtain permissions or direct you to material in the library collection that includes PPR.

Streaming videos accessed from the following sources include PPR:

  • Films on Demand 
  • Kanopy
