When you purchase DVDs your license gives you the right to use and circulate them within your school, public library or organization where no admission fees are charged or received.

A public library purchasing a duplication master may make copies for use within their branch libraries. The duplication master license is for unlimited copies. However copies may not be made for non affiliated schools or library branches. Copies may not be made for individual students to take home.
