I hate to be evil but I really don't have the time for this kind of thing
and I can't believe a major university does not know what PPR rights are.
In the past when I have called some of these places, it turns out they
don't even NEED PPR. I just don't have any patience for institution of
"higher " learning thinking that they can get PPP rights on feature films by
just sticking it on a PO. I accept that I am an impatient autocrat but I am
still going to toss them unless I happen to know someone at the institution
