The copyright convention that exists in the country of use, in your case the U.S.,
is the law that applies to the situation.
U.S. law allows a Home use video to be used in face-to-face teaching, therefore
the home use video that you bought from a foreign vendor is permissible to
be used in teaching in the U.S.
It is an unfair convention for us in Canada, as we have to buy
public performance rights for face-to-face use, but you, in the U.S. do not
have to do the same.

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.
