A perpetual license has no expiration date and allows your viewers to have permanent access to the title in Kanopy. Perpetual licenses are only available for some titles.
See the perpetual license terms and conditions.
How can I tell if a perpetual license is available for a title?
On a title's purchase page, titles with perpetual licenses will say, "This film is also available with a perpetual license." You can also hover over Buy now and look for the "Perpetual" option.
How much do perpetual licenses cost?
Perpetual license prices vary by title and supplier. The price will be listed under Buy now on the purchase page of each title with a perpetual license available.
In addition to the one-time purchase price, Kanopy charges an annual hosting fee of 5% of the license price (capped at $2,500 per account per year). For example, a title with a $500 perpetual license will incur a $25 annual hosting fee. Note that Kanopy is waiving hosting fees for all perpetual license titles through December 31, 2022.
