Would the esteemed members (or at least those willing to venture their
thoughts) shed some light on the "less of 3 minutes or 10%" fair use
rule for video with regard to teacher prepared material (Hyperstudio or
PowerPoint). In particular, do the rules for off-air taping (i.e. show
full piece once in 30 days and parts of piece within another 15) trump
the above fair use rule? Specific instance: teacher wishes to prepare a
digitized video clip of 2 minutes from material taped off-air over 45
days ago.
Many thanks in advance!
