I would be interested in hearing from those who have studied the issue
as to why (and how) TEACH would or would not apply in this situation.
It seems that everyone has a very different understanding of what this
portion of the law allows and getting all the different opinions
(hopefully supported by the text of the law or accompanying documents or
the published work of copyright specialists or lawyers) could be
valuable for us as video librarians. =20

It just really depends what the films are and who owns them. Since they
are not feature films at least
You have a chance. I see educational companies offering streaming
rights. If the films are currently available it should not be=20
That difficult to get price quotes.

What do you think of the possibilities of this scenario? I'm considering
applying for an institutional grant and need some advice.

Professor V. regularly teaches a semester-long class to approximately
150 students. 8 videos from a variety of distributors (NOT feature
films) are screened in full, face-to-face, during regularly scheduled
class times. Could rights be obtained to stream the entire 8 films on
the class website every time the course is offered? Could rights be
obtained on a semester-to-semester basis? The course management system
would only permit registered students to view the films-who presumably
already saw the entire film during their class but need to review for
papers/tests. If possible, how much time and cost do you estimate in
obtaining these rights? Or-would you just go ahead and not clear rights
in this case?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
