Why was this site created?

To help trainers of all levels use the magic of movies to enhance their training programs and to serve as a creative forum for trainers to share ideas and suggestions.

Do I need permission to use these scenes at work?

Yes, permission is required from the copyright holder, such as the studio or producer.  And, you must have a legally obtained copy of the movie or scene.

How can I get permission to use these scenes at work?

There are two sources depending on your use:

The Motion Picture Licensing Corporation provides an Umbrella License® from over 1,000 studios and producers for use by associations and industry conferences, government training or other public or semi public use, and can be reached at 800.462.8855 or at www.mplc.org.

The Copyright Clearance Center partners with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation to provide the Motion Picture License for the corporate world and can be reached at 978.750.8400 or at  Copyright Clearance Center - Motion Picture Licensing.

Are all the movie scenes included in this website covered by an MPLC or CCC license?

Yes.  As trainers, BPG creates our own intellectual property, so we respect the rights of other copyright holders, such as the rightsholders in the movies included in this website.  We only provide scenes that are currently licensed by these companies.

We own the movie, do we still need a license to view or show it in public?

Yes. While you may own the actual physical copy of the movie, you are only granted the right to view it in a personal, private setting. Any public performance requires a license.

We are a non-profit or government department and do not charge for our services. Do we still need a license for training purposes?

Yes. The legal requirement to obtain a license applies to non-profit and for-profit organizations, regardless of whether a fee is charged.

Could we qualify for a “face to face” teaching exemption?

It depends. The educational exemption is narrowly defined and applies to full-time, non-profit academic institutions only in certain circumstances and other specific conditions.  It does not apply to educational programs in or run by corporations.

Could we qualify for the fair use doctrine?

It depends. The fair use doctrine is a four factor test.  One of the factors weighed against a fair use consideration is use for commercial purposes.

How can I bring these scenes into my PowerPoint presentation?

Movies4Training is designed to enable you to legally obtain and stream movie scenes from a number of sources (i.e YouTube). You can share the category and videos with others by copying and sharing the page URL code.

If you would like to add the video directly into your PowerPoint presentation,  

1) Under the video of your choosing click  "Generate Embed Code" and copy the link

2) Choose Insert Video in PowerPoint which is located under "Insert" 

3) Paste the embed code in the "From a Video Embed Code" section. The video will be dropped into your presentation from the internet. From there you may adjust the size of the video within your presentation. Do not panic if the video screen is displayed as a black square. When you play the slide show your video will populate and will be able to play within your presentation rather than open up a new web browser window. Make sure to test it after you plug it in to your presentation. 

OR

1)  Under the video of your choosing hit "Generate Direct Link" and copy the link

2) Choose Insert Video in PowerPoint which is located under "Insert" 

3) Paste the Direct Link in the "YouTube" section and the movie will be dropped into your presentation. From there you may adjust the size of the video within your presentation.

Tips & Tricks:

If you are looking for a shorter snipet of one of the movie scenes, you may select exactly the time frame that you would like in your presentation. 

1) Copy the Embed Code

2) Within the Embed Code and within the quotations:

 ?start=(THE SECOND YOU WANT IT TO START AT)&end=(THE SECOND YOU WANT IT TO END AT)

Please make sure to use the seconds only. The video will not be trimmed if you use minutes. 

For example:<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ur0U4xN0d_A?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Would then be:<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ur0U4xN0d_A?start=90&end=120" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

3) You may then drop the scene into your presentation and play the scene through to make sure it starts and stops at the appropriate time.
