MessageHi, Yes, these guidelines extend to faculty using their tapes in the
classroom. The personal tape becomes the property of the institution the
minute it is used in such a manner. A book entitled "Using Videotapes in
the Classroom" was written in the 1980's to answer just this question and to
provide librarians (who are often called upon to be the copyright police)
with various policy/procedure guidelines and forms to use to record the
history of such use. While Section 108 actually places the restriction on
such use, the law does not delve into specific uses or procedures. These
guidelines are often called the Kastenmeir Guidelines as they were developed
from a committee chaired by Senator Kastenmeir (W). Be careful, because
these guidelines were written before cable television evolved, so off-air
taping refers to major broadcast studios (CBS, NBC, etc.), not necessarily
extending to cable television or satelite television.

I know that Section 108 of the copyright law places restrictions on
libraries uses of off-air recordings. Does this extend to faculty using
their own (not from the library's) off-air recordings in the classroom?

If this particular restriction does not apply, can someone point me toward
any section of the law that addresses the issue?

Thanks.
