While it may be true that a distributor would not be harmed financially by
having scenes excerpted from their videos, Carousel's contracts with the
producers, for one, do not allow such use. I would suggest that the
professor contact the licensor's in this case. Our cassette wrappers
specifically state that the user cannot "copy all or part of this program".

As I said, it's not a matter of our preventing this but we do not have these
rights to grant.
