Um this is not a tough one. Remember the ONLY exemption for feature film
material is "face to face " teaching and broadcasting on a CAMPUS wide
system does NOT fall under this.
No offense but this is basically a "convenience" request and the current
situation in which the film can be viewed in class, in the library and taken
out to be watched in a dorm room should be sufficient for any reasonable use
IF on top of that the professor wants students to be able to watch in a
campus cable system then he/she will have to negotiate rights for this and
as there are MANY important films you could
basically NEVER clear, I think it is not a practical idea
