While arguing about where fair use begins and ends, I think it would be =
prudent to keep something in mind. The further you go beyond what is =
specifically allowed by fair use, the more you open up your institution =
to the possiblity of a lawsuit. If your institution can take that flack, =
my advise it to go ahead and push the envelope if only so other =
institutions can know how far they may go. If your institution is not in =
a position to have to defend itself against an accusation of copyright =
infringment, I'd advise taking the conservative view.=20

As to the intent of the law, I have no idea. But it sounds to me as if =
the lawmakers wanted to make sure that unique items of scholarly =
importance will always be available. After all it seems to specifically =
allow copies of newsreels and disallow copies of motion pictures. I have =
no idea where this leaves film studies students.
