Isu-Faces.Legal.Battle.From.New.Yorker.Films-1597623.shtml

To summarize briefly: A student film group at Illinois State
University has received from New Yorker Films a bill for $8000 for
past VHS and DVD screenings on campus for which public performance
rights were not purchased. The film group feels that the screenings
were part of the educational activities of the University; New Yorker
begs to differ.
