Are DVDs licensed for viewing in schools or churches or public groups? This is a question that has been asked frequently in recent times.
Teachers DVD sets.
Storykeepers sets of DVDs with handbooks are licensed for public viewing. These DVDs are typically ‘cued up’ to allow the teacher to access any specific parable; the handbooks provide material to support such detailed access, or to run VBS or Holiday Clubs, or to run inter generational bible studies for church groups. The ‘public viewing licence’ is reflected in the price of these sets.
