You might want to think twice before showing a Disney film at a fundraiser.
One elementary school in Berkeley owes Disney $250 for showing “The Lion King” remake during a fundraiser for their school.
The members of the PTA from Emerson Elementary received a bill in the mail after showing the film at school.
Disney’s licensing agency, Moving Licensing USA mentioned that the school was charged since they didn’t obtain a Public Performance License to even show the movie.
One father bought the DVD at Best Buy and showed the film to the students for the fundraiser, causing the school to be hit with the $250 bill.
Do you think the school should have been charged the fee?
