The Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC), an independent copyright licensing agency, is introducing its Umbrella License for K-12 schools and districts to supplement any existing license to show movies. The license gives schools the performance rights to show movies, popular children’s programs, educational documentaries, and other audiovisual content for entertainment purposes on their campuses, and many major studios are covered. Once licensed, movies can be obtained from any legitimate source.
