There is nothing on the Amazon site that provides information indicating a license agreement on the home version of this DVD.

A license limiting use would trump US Copyright Law. But in the absence of such a license, US copyright law, section 110 ( ) covers use of the DVD for classroom use (provided the other provisions of the law are met.)

If you have received the video (and since you purchased it on November 9 I suspect you have), I would ignore the message. And I would not buy the institutionally priced copy.

Comments, anyone??  I'll probably break down and purchase it at the
institutional use price, but really--CANNOT be LEGALLY utilized
for....classroom use???
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.
