Subj: Copyright Reminder for Movie Events
This is just a reminder that all indoor/outdoor community movie presentation events taking place must be licensed with a rights representative such as Audio Cine Films Inc. This applies even if movies are shown freely or have been purchased in stores. Numerous municipalities and community associations across Ontario present “movies in the park” during the summer, and ALL of these have to be properly licensed.
