We are starting to think about streaming video, and of course pubic
performance issues arise. Would public performance permission be
required if a video is being streamed over a course reserve web site
where only students enrolled in the class could access and view the
stream? An argument could be made that the face-to-face teaching
exemption would apply. (Those faces are just a bit farther apart.)
