Q about use for educational purposes


I am one of the chaplains and am wondering if the statutory license for educational purposes would cover the showing of a film to students for educational purposes as part of chaplaincy events on campus?

Hi Thomas,

Good question! The way this works in terms of copyright is that if you are showing the film to a bunch of people that are enrolled in a course of study you are fine. If it's more of a walk up deal then the rules are affected by that and usually you have to negotiate a license to show the film publically - which is usually quite possible, but costs a little money. If your film isn't a feature film then you may find this process is easier and/or cheaper, I'm not entirely sure.

To have an expert pick over the details of your question I would advise you to contact our copyright officer Matthew Noble - matthew.noble@uts.edu.au
