[Videolib] instructor's DVD from textbook

I just had a faculty member ask if she could use a portion of the DVD that came with the instructor's copy of the textbook for her online class. She normally shows portions of the material from the DVD in her face to face class.

It sounds like there are multiple case studies on the DVD (she thought more that 10). She wants to show just one.

Is she free to stream as many of the case studies as she would like because they are part of the textbook? Or is she limited to a "reasonable" amount as if it were a separate item?

Seems to me that she would be fine to just show one case study, but I was wondering how to answer the next person who wants to show them all.

thanks in advance for the insight.

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.
