Showing motion pictures in senior living and health care communities has always required a public performance license in accordance with the U.S. Copyright Act. In August, AHCA/NCAL announced the terms of a new agreement for members to obtain an umbrella license from the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC). Fortunately, MPLC has agreed to extend the deadline to March 15, 2017 for the introductory discounted rate. Members still have the opportunity to save 40% and lock in their license at $2.00 per sleeping unit/room. Please visit the AHCA/NCAL website for the application brochure or to find more information about licensing agreements.
