There's another option. Tell teachers that all videorecordings are not
purchased with public performance rights and that they should not be used
for "treats." As a parent, that's my preferred solution. You won't be
able to buy rights for feature films anyway, so why make all of the
teachers crazy? You can use _Fantasia_ as part of instruction, but not
for a treat.
