I got a call from a school asking about PPR for classroom and I told them
they did not need PPR for a classroom but they said they were a FOR PROFIT
Institution and their lawyers advised them that they did. Sure enough I saw
That the " face to face" exemption is limited to non-profits. Somehow that
one had never occurred to me before. The institution in question was part of
the huge corp that owns DeVry IIT etc but it occurred to me that this would
Also apply to the growing number of for profit HS & grade schools sprouting
up. It would be REALLY interesting is distributors/copyright holders tried
To enforce it because I am sure they use DVDs & videos in instruction

Just for fun
