You are entirely correct but some companies insist that you buy
unnecessary rights
IF they are the only place selling it, you can try purchasing it as
individual and getting reimbursed because any LEGAL copy can be used in a
class. Unless every copy they sell to individuals requires you to sign a
contract specifically stating it is for personal use ( contract would trump
copyright ) which I am sure they don't, you are in the clear on this.

FYI this has NOTHING to do with "fair use" it is the "FACE TO FACE
teaching exemption

Subject: [Videolib] Fair use of videos

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?
