I am going to have a DLP projector in my theater and was wondering about the legalities of showing Pay per View events. Or NFL games, MLB games, etc. Anybody have experience with this? If I had free admission but opened up the concession stand, do you think that'd be legal? Sports bars do it all the time......

Sports bars do it all the time.....and some of them even get caught and taken to court by the copyright holders!

I am curious about that to. Do the sports bars lose in court? What's the penalty? The ads for these projectors all list those types of events as possibilities. How can you do it legally?

If somebody else made it, you have to obtain a licence or permission to show it.

Who do you have to go through to obtain the license for these venues? The Super Bowl is on in every bar you go into on Super Bowl Sunday. Do each of them get a license from somebody? Do they pay into something similar to ASCAP or something and then are authorized to play whatever is on TV, anytime?

John,

Thanks for the articles. I guess what I want to know is how do you go about legitimately getting the licenses to show NFL or MLB games. Pay-per-view without paying for it is certainly illegal. But what if I wanted to show a football game on Monday night? I noticed in one article it mentioned $10 per seating capapcityh which would put it out of my affordability range but I suspect that was for pay-per-view.

Does anybody know the answer to this one. I'd like to see if this is a viable option for when I'm not playing film.

Thanks

Lee

You would need to contact the NFL or MLB and negotiate a contract to show their games.
