Dubbing Selected TV New Stories

Recently, a question was raised regarding the video duplication
of stories taken from news broadcasts. Occasionally, the Media
Center is asked by state employees to copy a video that contains
news stories/political commericals, that relates to the business
of their state government department or agency. Copies of videos
are needed for hearings or other legal proceedings. State
departments may want to distribute information to their regional
branch offices.

Does anyone see any copyright problems with the copying of videos
with television news stories by a state agency for the official business
of another state agency??
