But digitizing from VHS can involve breaking encryption if the tape was recorded with Macrovision. Or so you would think.

"It's difficult to know what trumps what here: DMCA sez no breaking of
encryption (xcept for film studies folk, don't get me started
again)...so...Digitizing a clip from a DVD probably goes in the face of
DMCA, even tho TEACH might allow "broadcast" of the clip."--gary

Agreed. But digitizing from a VHS does not involve breaking any encryption. So those tapes could be precious resource for creating clips for online courses!!!
