Whoa! Say it ain't so!
I invited faculty, staff and students to a screening of the new DVD
of the Tin Drum to kick off Banned Books/Films week. Before the
screening, a law prof discussed the Oklahoma case and a German prof
discussed the artistic merit of the film. It took place in a
classroom on campus. This didn't fall under fair use?
