Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC)
In March 2010, Heritage Clubs International, LLC partnered with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC) to better educate our members about the need for copyright compliance when movies and other audiovisual programs are shown. Your Heritage Club maybe one of many that enjoys movie showings as a fun and affordable member benefit. Some Club Directors are unaware that showing movies within a bank club requires a public performance license. The MPLC is an independent copyright licensing vendor exclusively authorized by motion picture studios and producers to issue the MPLC Umbrella License®. The Umbrella License is an annual copyright license that allows for unlimited exhibitions of movies within your Heritage Club. Heritage Clubs International has secured special, reduced pricing for our members in order to encourage copyright compliance and promote the wide range of programs available when your club obtains an Umbrella License.
Once licensed, an unlimited number of movies can be shown for one low annual license fee. Movies can be obtained by any legal means whether rented, purchased, or borrowed.
To obtain a license, simply complete the application provided in the HCI Member MPLC Brochure and send it directly to the MPLC.
