pERSONAL STREAMING SUBSCRIPTION USE

The Netflix End User License Agreement, which you agreed to when you created an account, specifies that the account is “only for your personal, non-commercial use.”

Netflix is not alone here; Amazon PrimeHulu, and other personal streaming vendors do not grant rights for institutional or educational use.

This is important because licenses overrule copyright exemptions. Showing your personal DVD during class is covered by a specific copyright exemption (Section 110), and showing clips can be covered by fair use (Section 107).

There is no copyright exemption that allows streaming videos from personal subscription vendors in your classroom when the license prohibits such viewings.

To stream a film/video, consider using one of the resources linked on this page...all are cleared for classroom use.
