In order to ensure that professors, staff, or students do not lose access to a film you have licensed upfront, Kanopy has designed renewed licenses not to begin until current licenses expires. As such, there is no need to wait for your upfront license to expire before renewing.
The process can take as little as five minutes depending on the renewal's complexity.
You can always see licenses that are about to expire by logging into your administrative account and clicking on "Expiring Licenses."
