In addition to my admin account I set up a personal account. I do get the regular "see what's new" messages from Kanopy. They have the requisite "unsubscribe" link but I haven't done this as I want to know what our users may be receiving. I'm not surprised by this given their business model. Besides, the movies are "free" ;-)

Have other institutions had patrons receiving emails from Kanopy encouraging them to view other films? I heard that a professor at our college got a Kanopy email “telling him to watch a movie” and he was wondering why he got it. This makes me worried that our users who made accounts on Kanopy are getting marketing emails from Kanopy (which of course increases the chance we will be charged more money on the monthly invoice).
Apologies if I missed conversation on this earlier, I try to follow all the Kanopy-related discussions but may have missed one or two.
