In the most recent issue of "Video Librarian" there is a short blurb about
Schools and the Public Performance Myth - the paragraph says that if you are
planning to use videos in a "face to face teaching situations, as part of
the curriculum" you don't need public performance rights. Does this apply
only to American schools or does it also apply to Canada? Can anyone
clarify? Thank you.
