Stan -- Agree, Agree, Agree with what you said about public performance and
cable cast rights never being the "same" thing. Maybe I should have been
clearer about what I meant. That is, sometimes both sets of rights are
included with purchase and are specifically stated thus. We don't assume
public performance rights are ever the same as cable cast rights. We check and
sometimes findthe copyright owner grants both. Copyright is a fuzzy business
and very few are experts. That's why we try to shift the responsibility for
securing cable cast rights to the user (faculty, campus tv etc.)
