Film/Video Education and the New Copyright Act.
Johnson, Mark
The Copyright Act of 1976 provides statutory definitions of fair use and in general is restrictive of the use of film and video in an educational setting, reflecting a general "copyright owner's" point of view. Film distributors are enforcing and planning to continue to enforce their rights under the law. There is a general concern that piracy and unauthorized use may result in pay cable and videocassettes becoming the major forms of distribution at the expense of theatrical film distributors. Twelve references are cited. (Author/CHC)
