Copyright and Streaming Services
There has recently been great debate about the use of streaming services (Amazon Prime, Netflix HBO go, Hulu Etc) in the classroom.Yes, you can use most movies in the classroom when you are using them as part of an instructional lesson or program. However the license/contract on your personal streaming service in most cases does not allow for this type of use.For specific questions, consult your streaming provider and their terms of service, the School Library System office, or take a look at the links below for more information.** This does not apply to Learn 360 streaming services provided to you by O/N BOCES Media Services. Those streaming resources are specifically licensed for classroom/public use by participating districts. **Q: Can I show a Netflix movie in my classroom?
A: According to Title 17, Chapter 1, § 110(1) you may show all or part of a movie, in a face-to-face (F2F) classroom, provided that the movie was made lawfully and it is for educational use only and not for entertainment or commercial use.
