If you need to show a video in your classroom, for pedagogical purposes to students enrolled in your class, you do not need to license or pay to show that video. However, outside of the class you will have to purchase Public Performance Rights, even if showing the video has a pedagogical purpose to its showing. If you need to license Public Performance Rights, please email a Reynolds librarian.
