I know we've been down this road before, but I thought I'd check with you
before replying to one of our profs who wants to use a total of 35 minutes
of taped excerpts from Saving Private Ryan (169 min.) in face-to-face
instruction. The longest of the 7 clips is 8 min., the shortest is just
over 2 min. Where he got the original tape from which to take the excerpts
is unknown. Any copyright problem with doing this? What if he then puts
the tape of clips on reserve in the library for his students to use for
review/study/assignment purposes?
