So, what is your opinion of the legality of these scenarios?

a. Professor plans to screen a film for face-to-face teaching, but =
happens to move the screening to a large auditorium and invite students =
from the entire department to the screening. Other than an intro, no =
instruction happens at the screening.
b. Professor organizes scholarly conference and will be screening films =
as part of the conference. The conference is organized by a graduate =
class, but attendees come from throughout the U.S. =20
c. HR unit at nonprofit educational institution wants to screen videos =
to groups of employees to raise cultural awareness.
d. Social work students want to screen a film to a group of high-school =
students they are working with as part of a practicum project.

So, just to be clear: the *only* way that you can show a film at a =

to the whole campus and perhaps to the public is *if* you have public =

I am going to start asking our cataloging people to enter a note abuot =

This is a slightly different take on the current subject, public
performance. Below is a link to an IUPUI web page that seems to
indicate that non-classroom campus video showings may be permissible.
The specific phrase in the second example is:
=09
"The performance is part of a teaching activity, however it does not
have to be part of a regular course; therefore, host a related
discussion forum or arrange for a student or instructor to lead an
educational program related to the film."
=09
Does anyone else agree that this use is acceptable in the university?
