Thanks, Jessica, for clarifying what MPLC can and cannot do. They *cannot*
license you to allow student groups to use your home video for true public
performances. They *can* license you to allow students to watch home videos
in the library. But as Jessica points out, copyright experts are agreed
that you don't need a license for that purpose! So what are you paying for
from MCPL? The right to do something that you already have the right to
do. And you still can't allow the French club to use your tapes for public
programs!
