Good Morning!

I have a copyright question that's not quite what I see you all usually
dealing with but was hoping I might get some advice with re: the taping of
an actor (non-union) here at my library. We are paying him a fee. We would
like to tape him for our Library Cable Network channel which airs over cable
TV on a government/educational channel here in Illinois. We will own the
rights to the taped program. He will receive a copy for his personal use. He
will be giving a dramatic reading performance of a James M. Cain and
Dashiell Hammett short story.

Do I need to get permission to do this? If so, do I have to it through the
publisher or estate? Has anyone ever done this?

Thanks in advance for any response,

Gena
