EDUCATIONAL LICENSES

GOOD DOCS sells to Educational Institutions with educational licenses and pricing. Purchasing from Netflix or Amazon, Video On Demand Streams, and Home Use DVDs are intended for home use only. These purchases are not licensed for use in universities, schools, public libraries, churches or government agencies. It is a violation of copyright law to host a public screening of our films using a HOME USE DVD or Video On Demand. The Federal Copyright Act (Title 17 of the US Code) governs how copyrighted materials, such as movies, may be used. Neither the rental nor the purchase of a copy of a copyrighted work carries with it the right to publicly exhibit the work. This legal requirement applies regardless of whether an admission fee is charged, whether the institution or organization is commercial or nonprofit, or whether a federal or state agency is involved.

Unlike large studios that have big production, advertising and publicity budgets, our independent filmmakers often rely on small grants and donations to produce their work. Because of this patchwork funding landscape for indie filmmakers, they are rarely remunerated for the three - ten years it typically takes to make a high quality, well researched film. Most documentary films also include costly archival footage. That’s why GOOD DOCS sets prices that are standard among educational distributors to help filmmakers cover these enormous costs and continue their important work. Please consider this when you may be tempted to purchase or stream one of our titles intended for home use from Netflix or Amazon, HOME USE DVDs, Video On Demand Streams.
