Communal Living Facilities
Apartments, condominiums, manufactured housing, retirement and master planned communities all enjoy the types of neighborly activities and events that bring residents together and foster a sense of community. Movies are an easy, affordable way to provide entertainment to residents of all ages. However, exhibitions within common areas such as outdoor spaces, clubhouses, recreation and/or community rooms are considered "public" by law, and require a license whether two or twenty residents are present.

Religious Organisations
The MPLC partnered with Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI), to create Christian Video Licensing International (CVLI). The MPLC has long been the leader in public performance licensing for movies, while CCLI is a respected pioneer in music copyright licensing services for churches. CVLI was created to serve the video licensing needs of the faith-based community with a simple, affordable licence. The result was the CVLI Video Licence which works just like the Umbrella Licence, it simply has a different name. Mosques, Temples and Synagogues continue to be licensed through the MPLC.

Schools
While almost all exhibitions outside of the home require a licence, some educational screenings are exempt. This exemption is narrowly defined and applies only for educational use where the content is shown in the classroom, as part of the curriculum course or study programme. All other school showings require a separate licence. Video uses in your school or campus that are subject to copyright law, include, but are not limited to: rainy day recess, before or after school programmes, parent-teacher organisation events, extracurricular programmes, film clubs, and activities. Boarding schools face the additional challenge of ensuring copyright compliance within common areas of dormitories as these spaces are considered "public".

All state schools in England are covered by the Department for Education nationally for a number of copyright licences, including for the MPLC. In Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland licences are held either directly by the school/academy or through a local authorities block licence.

For Independent Schools in England & Wales we have a partnership with The Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS) who administer the issuing the MPLC Umbrella Licence.
