Just buy the "Home Use" version with your credit card, and get
reimbursed. If all you were doing, was showing it in a classroom
setting, you didn't need the PPR in the first place.

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?
