Public Performance Rights

All of our streaming media resources can be used in the education environment (i.e., as class assignments or viewing as a class in the classroom setting). However, not all can legally be used for other events outside of this educational environment. In order for a video to be used in other settings, such as a student group activity, screening as part of a lecture outside of the classrrom, etc., then UCI must have Public Performance Rights (PPR) for that film. 

GOOD NEWS! Many of the streaming films that UCI Libraries provides access to have PPR. Everything provided by Alexander Street/Proquest and Kanopy have PPR. A full listing of streaming resources by title and whether it has PPR here at UCI is below.
