Leasing Rights   Purchasing a copy of a Her Own Words® DVD includes the right to show the DVD in classroom settings and small informal gatherings like brown bag lunches where no admission is charged. However, purchasing a DVD does not automatically confer Public Performance Rights, Streaming Rights, or Broadcast Rights. In addition to purchasing a physical DVD, all of these rights need to be formally leased and a time frame and other details agreed on. 

Public Performance Rights   These are rights that can be leased to show a DVD publicly such as in a museum setting or a large formal occasion like a Women’s History Month celebration open to the public. We can negotiate either one-time rights or rights for a specific period of time.

Streaming Rights   These are rights to stream a digitized version of a DVD in a password-protected environment for a specific period of time.

Broadcast Rights   These are rights to broadcast a DVD on a network for a specific period of time. We are happy to negotiate leasing broadcast rights on public television, free over-the-air networks, cable television, and other networks.

TO DISCUSS DETAILS   Please call 608-271-7083, or email us for more specific information.
