Hello,
I know i may be treading on dangerous ground, but I believe this is legal under fair use. It is the same as quoting a block from a textbook. You have to make sure that the clip retains what the "author " intended however. When my library bought the PBS videodatabase, that was one of the selling points, that students could do this and that it was not something that PBS was letting us do, fair use made it possible.
ever the copyright neophyte,
John

I got some profs here who want their students to check out our films and
copy bits of them for media arts projects.

Oh, wise copyright gurus, tell me why this is as illegal as I suspect.
