Educational Rights

What are Educational Public Performance Rights (PPR)?

Educational Public Performance Rights (PPR) allow for screening IN A CLASSROOM SETTING ONLY for matriculated students in any not-for-profit educational institution in an educational context.

These Educational PPR rights are valid in the USA and Canada when purchased on the USA Site (microcinemadvd.com) and valid in Europe when purchased from the European site (microcinemadvd.co.uk).

In some cases Microcinema is authorized to sell some titles with PPR rights to for-profit institutions. Please inquire at email address below.

What is a Digital Site License (DSL)?

Some of Microcinema's titles are available with a Digital Site License (DSL). A DSL allows educational institutions and libraries to encode, locally host, and exhibit to their students and members via a "closed-circuit" system, such as VOD, in perpetuity.

Titles are available in DVD form and/or electronic file.

What is DVD with PPR?

A physical DVD that is licensed to be played via playback device in a classroom setting.

To Purchase:

PPR or DSL licenses will be listed on all invoices.

Why are some Educational DVD with PPR or DSL prices the same as retail prices?

Prices are set by rights holders - many do not wish to charge more for educational usage.
