This scenario entails performing or displaying copyrighted works, including videos, for in-person classroom instruction. Section 110(1) of the copyright code provides that videos may be shown for educational purposes assuming the following conditions are met:
- It's part of instruction for a face-to-face class
- It takes place in a classroom or "similar place devoted to instruction"
- For videos and other audiovisual works, the copy of the work was legally obtained (i.e. the copy wasn't pirated or bootlegged)
Public performance rights
This scenario is associated with public display of videos for which performance rights have been procured. Many videos in the Libraries' collection have public performance rights which allow the public display of videos in University Libraries facilities as long as no admission is charged. Also, university faculty, staff, and organizations may publicly display videos for which they have purchased public performance rights.
A public performance is generally defined as "a non-theatrical performance of a program, without charge, outside the home to a gathering of people other than family members and/or acquaintances. These gatherings are normally found in locations such as schools, libraries, and religious and civic institutions. Public performance rights also include closed-circuit transmission within a single building or on a single, geographically unified campus."
