Lucerne, Phoenix, Film Ideas, and Disney come to mind immediately - unless
I'm misunderstanding the question. Their materials come with PP rights.

It's been my understanding that for regional libraries to provide
circulating copies of videos to local school districts, PP rights are
required.

I have noticed that a fair number of the "real cheap" video companies have
fine print (it takes a magnifying glass to read it!) which says something
similar to "these materials are provided under Fair Use guidelines" which
would NOT allow me to circulate them to schools.

Am I wrong on this?
