Kinko's does not have laws on copyright. They are simply trying to obey the
law established by the government. There is a number which you can call for
explicit information. Your school district should have detailed information.
In fact they should have made the details available to you. We were provided
with copies several years ago. I was amused to note that they were Xeroxed
copies. :-)) At any rate more than one school has been "busted" for illegal
copying. However, there are very liberal guidelines within which you can
operate in your classroom. We even have a special form for rented videos, etc.
Our district is determined not to pay any stiff fines. And I sure as heck
don't want to.
when I taught video production one of the hardest things to teach was the
copyright law. Teenagers are very difficult to convince that the law is
violated when they copy something. It doesn't matter what they do with it. It
is already illegal.
