[Videolib] PPR Po Pet Peeve

Ok there is my tong twister
I just got a PO from a major institution for a new DVD release
The PO Includes in the text that the title is Purchased WITH PUBLIC
PERFORMANCE RIGHTS. This drives me NUTS as it has NO legitimate legal force
and will almost surely lead to this institution thinking or claiming PPR
on things it does not have. In this case Kino DOES own the PPR but as you
know many places you might send a PO ( including Kino depending on the
title) DON'T OWN PPR. In any case PPR is virtually NEVER included on
Feature Fiction films. I have NO idea what the university wants the PPR
FOR. Sometimes I get forms that at least ASK for specific rights which I can
always check NO on if it is in fact a PPR right ( sometimes they just ask
for things they have anyway like circulating the title on or off campus).
What scares me is that this is a BIG school which I am sure sends out a lot
of PO's like this one. Does anyone know of any other institutions which just
assume PPR if they stick in the PO?
Luckily this one has a phone # ( and e mail) otherwise I would literally
toss it
