Don't think they name the sections ( Gary?) but fair use refers to use of
PORTIONS of copyrighted works without being obliged to pay rights for them
and it is a complicated and
not entirely clear formula.
Face to Face lets you use a complete work in "real" classroom setting.

Thanks for your response. It is my understanding that the face-to-face
clause is part of the Fair Use section of the Copyright Law.

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

Good morning:
A teacher in my building has requested we purchase the video "Pompeii" show=
n
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. =A0I=
t
is my understanding that Fair Use covers the showing of videos in classroom=
s
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?
