AHCA/NCAL Strikes Agreement with Motion Picture Licensing Corporation

“Movie Night” is a time honored tradition at an assisted living community or skilled nursing center – an expected social activity for many residents. This week, AHCA/NCAL announces a formal agreement with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC) to help long term and post-acute care providers continue to offer this cherished event while adhering to federal copyright laws.

Motion picture showings within senior living and health care communities have always required a public performance license in accordance with the U.S. Copyright Act.
