Licensing guidelines for hosting movie showings
The Federal Copyright Law (United States Code, Title 17, Sections 101 and 106) licensing is required for any film(s) shown outside the privacy of an individual’s home, regardless of the number of people in attendance and even when an admission is NOT charged. Neither the rental nor the purchase or lending of a videocassette or DVD carries with it the right to exhibit such a movie publicly outside of the home.
Check out Swank to learn more about how you can acquire a license for movie screening in your church.
