Public Performance Licensing Consortium Pricing
Our consortium (REMC 12W out of KRESA, and REMC 12E out of Calhoun ISD) secures pricing for public performance licenses at a significant savings. Any school building that shows a movie should have this license to be in compliance with copyright law. We coordinate this licensing through Movie Licensing USA. It is an opportunity that all school buildings in REMC 12 may participate in - schools participating in the group purchase will receive about 60% off the cost of a regular license.
