I think Joel is mistaken.
Home use only video may be shown in a classroom because of the face-to
face teaching EXEMPTION to the copyright law, but only if the video is
part of a for-credit course curriculum, etc.
It is a violation if they are shown as entertainment, or to kill time
while the teacher is away.
I wonder why any school would need to purchase a copy of Indian in the Cupboard unless its for entertainment, or as part of a video collection to be
checked out.
I someone seriously using this film as part of an academic curriculum?
