Copyright and Use Agreement for The Sum Total of Our Memory
If you are showing the film anywhere outside your home, you are legally obligated to purchase the appropriate license for your institution. The Federal Copyright Act (Title 17 of the United States Code) governs how copyright materials, such as movies, may be used. The present copyright law establishes the principal that a copyright is property and no one can use someone else’s property without permission of the owner or the owner’s licensing agent. To protect this property right, the law gives the copyright owner the right to license any public performance of the work and to charge a fee when others use the protected work.
A tiered pricing option is offered according to the general usage for each type of organization. These prices are based on industry standards used by most independent film producers. As independent filmmakers, we rely on public support to keep producing documentary films and making them available to the public. All of the proceeds from these sales go directly into paying off post-production costs, paying our staff, producing new content, and distributing the film to you.
