Other forms of use
Works can be used in many other ways and when they do not fall under any of the above headings, the easiest way is to contact us. Except where there is an exception in the law, the principle always remains the same: an exploitation requires the specific prior authorisation of the authors or right owners, and SSA will generally be able to grant you the necessary authorisations for the use of works in its Entirety of works of a certain administration category.
However, authorisation for public screenings of audiovisual works is the responsibility of the entities producing such works, of film distribution companies, or of certain companies specialised in licensing for specific uses. The Pro Cinema website may be useful in finding the company that is entitled to grant authorisations in your case.
Only in exceptional cases, for example if a video recording has not been commercialised and is a Intellectual property creation in literature and art (as well as computer programmes) exhibiting an individual and therefore unique character. Said individual character is the prerequisite that a work can be protected. in SSA’s Entirety of works of a certain administration category, will SSA be able to help you with authorisation for a public screening.
