No sweat, Jessica. We're all in the same boat. We all are labeled bad
guys at our institutions because we won't allow Taxi Driver to be shown
at the student union, or won't make a copy of a 16mm film to please
someone who doesn't feel like learning how to use a projector, or won't
allow "A Taste of Cherry" to be shown at the international festival.
"Really! It truly IS educational!!" I think we're all committed to
complying with copyright law, or else we wouldn't bother debating it on
a listserve. :)

Just in case you all think I spend my time harassing innocent
librarians
over copyright I wanted you to know that I am actually pretty nice
about it.
I NEVER charge poor Canadians for PPR ( except a few cases of
difficult
producers) as I feel bad that their copyright laws do not allow for
classroom use. Kino never charges for use of our stills ( good
publicity)
or use of our titles for conferences & academic events which also help
promote the film. Also I have no objection to the use of our tapes
WITHOUT
any additional charge over the standard retail price for use as
outlined
below by a University Library

Instructional Media Resources serves the academic media needs
of
faculty and students at MTSU. This service is most
effectively
accomplished through our restricted, single-campus, closed-circuit
cable system over which we play only to a non-paying faculty
and
student audience. This system originates in Instructional
Media
Resources with the underground cable going to most classroom
buildings on campus, our viewing carrels, and to the
University
Library. No recreational facilities, dormitories, cafeterias,
offices, or off-campus locations are connected to this system.
Upon individual faculty request for a specific class, we
schedule
to play requested programs over this system. We do not
schedule
any programs at random, nor do we in any way "advertise" the
programs scheduled by faculty. Programs must go onto the
cable
to play to individual requestors in the Library, and often
within
our facility as well.

However for the record I DO still object to the idea of EVER
duplicating a
copyrighted work, without permission of the copyright holder ( again I
mean
Feature films which with VERY rare exceptions are nearly always under
copyright and while it takes time AND money you CAN find the owner of
feature films)
