Stan and all others reading this -- Yes we understand campus cable rights and
public performance rights may be unrelated; sometimes they're the same. I've
called PBS and asked for permission to cable cast a "Public Performance" video
over campus cable and was given approval. Other times, other distributors,
the answer was "No." Then we had to negotiate and sometimes pay for the
campus cable use. It's a mixed bag out there in my experience. My word of
caution is check and double check before assuming you have permission. Thanks
for the comments. Francis Poole, University of Delaware.
