If your group is showing a film or reviewing any recording with licensing rights:
- Read the law regarding licensing rights.
- Generally, a film showing is "public" if it takes place "at a place open to the public or at any place where a substantial number of persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances is gathered." We interpret this as any event that takes place inside the library.
- The licensing of a film is building-specific. So, even if your group is licensed to show the film, the library must have permission, too. Search here to see if your film is covered under one of the library's licensing agents. Use the search feature. If it is not, look here to see if your film's distributor is covered under the library's other licensing agent.
