I've been following the "fair use," "face to face showings," and other
copyright issues debate with a great deal of interest. As a long-time independent
producer and entrepreneur, I'm just completely baffled by the question of
why professional librarians wd even dream of risking personal and institutional
liability (to say nothing of reputation) by skirting the edges of legality
in the service of aggressive and misinformed faculty members who wd (in my
opinion) not be even a little bit grateful to them for taking the risk.
