I am trying to get a good copy of the video, The Fine Art of Faking It. An
object in the Cleveland Museum of Art played a prominent part and we want
to use it, legally, as part of an exhibition on conservation.

Now the problem is, getting a good copy and the permission to use it. It
was a Nova show and it was sold at one time by Films for the Humanities.
They no longer handle Nova. Nova has said we can use anything we want, no
problem. I am going to try to talk to them again, to see if they can dupe
a good copy for us. The problem is, I don't know who to talk to, any
suggestions ? It was orgignally produced for WGBH, any suggestions on who
to talk to there. In fact, any suggestions period. See what happens when
you try to do things legally.
