What you say is true, but Discovery Channel has an agreement with Films=20=

for the Humanities & Sciences to handle educational sales. "Pompeii:=20
Daily Life of the Ancient Romans" is at Films for $149.95 on vhs or dvd.

morning:

A teacher in my building has requested we purchase the video "Pompeii"
shown on The Discovery Channel. =A0I called them and was told that it
does not come with public performance rights and therefore cannot be
sold to a school. =A0It is my understanding that Fair Use covers the
showing of videos in classrooms as part of instruction, which is how
this would be used. =A0I understand that I would need PPR if I were to
show it in the auditorium for entertainment.

Help?
