Good morning:
A teacher in my building has requested we purchase the video "Pompeii" shown
on The Discovery Channel. I called them and was told that it does not come
with public performance rights and therefore cannot be sold to a school. It
is my understanding that Fair Use covers the showing of videos in classrooms
as part of instruction, which is how this would be used. I understand that I
would need PPR if I were to show it in the auditorium for entertainment.
Help?
