2. Video Licensing Registration Information

EDGE is pleased to offer you the opportunity to obtain a Public Performance Video License at great cost savings of between $125-$150 for your church! We have negotiated a video licensing agreement with Criterion Pictures and Audio Cine Films (ACF) Inc. who represent most of the major distributors including Paramount, Universal, Alliance Atlantis, New Line Cinema, Miramax, Disney, Veggie Tales and many, many more!

You need a public performance license if you show movies or clips from movies/TV programs for public viewing during programming or worship or fundraising (unless you are showing ‘live-fee’ YouTube material). Without a public performance license you are breaking current copyright laws.

The combined cost for the public performance license is $1.50 per person plus HST based on average Sunday attendance as reported on the 2017 Statistical Return Forms filed with the United Church of Canada.  The license will be effective from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019.
