If you need PPR for something like Public showing or Campus Cable etc
than YOU MUST GET THE RIGHTS from whoever owns the film, WHEREVER they are.
I don't even think Gary would disagree with me on this
Just because a film or video is not distributed in the US does NOT mean
it is not protected. It would most likely be VERY difficult to track down
rights on such a title , so I would recommend either not buying if you MUST
have PPR or find a way just to use it for standard classroom use without
PPR. However I have in the past been surprised by the ability of some places
to in fact track down overseas rights holders and get permission. If you are
really stuck ON THIS one I can give some suggestions for tracking down
rights on a Hong Kong Feature film but since there are going to be
cases where either you CAN NOT TRACK RIGHTS HOLDER or THEY WON'T GRANT
PERMISSION, I would again urge you to see if you can tell Profs to just
stick to using them IN CLASS
