We do NOT purchase "home use only" videos for our academic collection
knowingly. We try to always purchse public performance rights. Home
use means just that to us and we have conservatively interpreted
copyright and fair use laws to exclude home use videos for instruction.
anyone else out there the law this way? Judy Jones, CSUS, 916/278-7302
