Does anyone have specifics on A&E or Disney filing lawsuits? I think
Disney might have gone after some entertainment screenings, but I have
never heard of them trying to go after instructional use ( though I would
not put it past them).

On the fair use issues, from a distributor point of view I find that high
schools and public libraries are sometimes overly cautious ( like not
wanting to use tapes in classes or study carrols) and university libraries
often violate copywrite ( cable showings, public screenings, dubbing tapes
