    That's OK as long as she factors in the cost of a public screening licencse

    I particulary smile when schools (not mine of course) charge to show a film on DVD for a PTFA event

    You should be Covered by your LEA, as school have had TV since the beginning of time and some school show some educational shows during the morning channel 4 or BBC 2. Old school stuff

    Can anyone confirm if anything more than a TV license is required to show the game for free, in the canteen for example?

    All you need to watch a live program for free is a TV license.

    We're going through this at the moment, and you do need a licence from FIFA to show it. They require you to have a non-commercial public viewing licence. The licence is free, but it is required. Unfortunately, the deadline for applications was 07/05/10.

    If the game is shown on a TV channel, or live on iplayer etc... and the school has a tv license, FIFA has no say in any further licensing - it is covered by UK broadcasting law!

    Not according to FIFA. The agreements with the BBC, ITV, etc are all intertwined with this.

    Honestly, why have they bothered putting up a whole section about licences if its as simple as "If its on TV, whack it on" ?

    Because UK law trumps some nonsense agreement by a company? See TV Licensing - Business and organisations

    FIFA is NOT in charge of the UK airwaves. The UK government is, and they make it very clear with regards to what the license covers.

    So the BBC signed up to this agreement with FIFA, knowing that they were going to disregard large chunks of it?

    Best get down the high street and let all the pubs and bars know that they can claim back all that cash they wasted on a fifa broadcast licence.

    I don't care what FIFA says... When I pay for a TV license, it allows me to show TV in my house. It also allows me to have friends around to watch it.

    When a school pays for a TV license, it allows the school to show TV to its staff and pupils, and to any visitors within the site for school business.

    How do you reckon FIFA are allowed to overrule the various Acts of Parliament by trying to enforce private licensing for these places?

    Of course you may, it doesn't make it any more correct. Watching it for free and letting lots of people watch it in a canteen in a school are two different things. Sitting at home, all you need is a TV licence. It is a totally different situation with a gathering of people in a work place, even if entry isn't charged.

    I know its stupid, I know its ridiculous. I was just trying to pass on some info. I can't be bothered to argue it, because I know I'm right. If you want, you can give the BBC a ring and tell them they're wrong too, they're the ones that told us this.

    Cue "lol troll, lol leaving because you'er wrong, lol whatever" here. Glass stomach.
