More PP issues

Here we go again. Recently I mentioned on the listserv, that I have not paid much attention the public performance issues simply because I haven't had to yet, so forgive my ignorance. What are colleges and universities doing for campus wide student film nights/showings and presentations? Are they renting films or buying tapes with public performance rights? I have no idea how much any of these things cost but we have a group on our campus who would like to do such things and there are some people on campus who apparantly do not know the importance of doing this legally. Are there any specific cases that I can point them to and/or some good web pages on copyright specifically addressing this issue? Thanks a bunch, as always.
