I thank you all for your thoughts on this - remember me? I asked the
original question re: PP rights.

The issue (PP rights for regional K-12 libraries) appears to come down to
whether the videos are always used in face-to-face instruction as part of a
lesson plan or whether they are sometimes used as "treats."

I know that teachers sometimes use videos as "treats" - and that means I
need PP rights for my collection if I want the teachers to have the ability
to utilize the videos as they desire.
