Film (Video or DVD) Policy

Viterbo University requires its students and student organizations to abide by video copyright laws. These laws are largely untested, and precedents and practices vary considerably around the country. It is clear, however, that the laws prohibit public performances of videocassettes and DVDs and permit private or home use of them. Viterbo University, therefore, deems it to be within the bounds of copyright law for a videocassette or DVD to be used in a lounge, common room, or private room within its residence facilities if: (a) the showing is not open to the general public, and (b) admission is not charged. Questions about the performance of videocassettes and DVDs in residence facilities should be addressed to the Assistant Director of Student Engagement.
