ABOUT DIGITAL SITE LICENSES
Purchasing a DVD with Educational Rights means that the film(s) on the DVD may only be used for in-person classroom screenings and viewings.
Explicitly excluded is the right for a college or university to internally rip/digitize the film(s) on the DVD, in order to stream them locally for classes and students within the institution.
The right to do this may be obtained by purchasing a Digital Site License (DSL) for the lifetime of the DVD (i.e., in perpetuity).
DSL rights allow colleges and universities to locally host and stream the film(s) on the DVD within a closed, password-protected system that is restricted to use by those enrolled in classes on a single campus.
The cost of DSL rights depends on the length of the film(s):
- 60 minutes or more $495
- 31 to 59 minutes long $395
- 30 minutes or less $225
NB: Should your institution wish to purchase DSL rights for multiple DVDs at once, please contact us for bulk pricing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
DSL rights may also be purchased retroactively for DVDs an institution purchased in the past. To do so, go to our online store.
