I wrote to CBS years ago and got a phone call back. I was told that some
segments could be purchased for $200 each but I could not be given
permission to tape and use them in the classroom. I have compiled tapes
for years and use them on occasion. So far I have not been turned in for
showing stolen videos in class. My district has a very strict policy against
use of video without a site license. And they are great art segments, 5-7
minutes in length and great for introducing or following up a lesson.

I hope someone finds out differently this time. I decided a ways back
just plunge ahead with what I thought was good teaching and stop trying
to stir up the legal questions. For the most part I just get answers I don't
wish to hear.
