Licence and Pricing Conditions

Licence conditions and copyright breaches

For Category A, B and C use, the NFSA grants a non-exclusive, non-theatric licence which grants the right to screen the program for educational or internal organisation use. Customers who purchase programs at the Category A, B, C or Home Viewer price do not have public performance rights to the program. Public performance is defined as any publicly advertised screening to a paying or non-paying audience.

Programs may only be used for purposes indicated by the purchase price paid. Programs may not be edited, duplicated, broadcast, transmitted by cable or otherwise transmitted by any multi-receiver, open or closed circuit system, whether or not admission is charged, without prior written permission from the NFSA. Any contravention of these restrictions may be regarded as a breach of copyright and may lead to prosecution.

For all other uses please contact the NFSA.
