To purchase rights

If you would like to use a video for a public performance as defined in this guide, the specific terms of the licenses for individual films that have PPRs can be provided by library staff.

Please contact Karen Gruber, Acquisitions and Budget Manager

(phone: 484-664-3570, email:

  • for information about specific licenses;
  • if you have additional questions regarding the terms of use of these items or
  • if you would like a license with broader terms. 

For further questions about PPR or other aspects of copyright, contact the Scholarly Communication Librarian at .

Note that most streaming 'Feature Films' do NOT have public performance rights (PPR) included. 

This includes most films from Swank and Criterion Pictures. 

This doesn't mean you can't use a film from these vendors, but it does mean that if you wish to publicly screen a film from these vendors outside the classroom, you will need to procure PPR prior to viewing.
