Can I show a film I bought in a shop in a classroom for education purposes?

Audio and video

Videos and DVDs for personal sale often state an explicit ban on showing the film in education. Consequently, permission must be obtained separately from the film producer.

This prohibition is often circumvented in educational practice. Permitting this is justifiable, because the Dutch Copyright Act permits presentations in the classroom if they are part of the curriculum.
