Can I use my NetFlix or Amazon Prime in my online class?
Streaming movies via your account is a real stretch of Fair Use and requires licensing under the TEACH Act.
Students can get their own accounts through services like Netflix or Amazon to view movies. You may show a DVD movie in a face-to-face class.
The user agreement states “the Software is only for your own personal, non-commercial use and not for use in the operation of a business or service bureau, for profit or for the benefit or any other person or entity.”
