I am confused are you using the Sony home use case as the whole film
precedent or something else because it is not REMOTELY on point to your
Belief that you MIGHT be able to stream an entire film on a campus etc

Look I don't want to keep going on with this as it seems useless

I think you are really leading people down the garden path and confusing
This "face to face"

No one has EVER claimed that "fair use" would cover an entire work let alone
one being transmitted. If you want to get sued by every
Studio in town and cost your school a bundle be my guest and try it
But I STRONGLY suggest consulting a real copyright lawyer before you
Do
