Hi, great topic! Wonder 2 things:

1) Is Dr. Atl's work avaialble anywhere on the web? -and-

2) Isn't there a copyright problem with showing "Fantasia" in a classroom?
If you own the VHS video as I do, isn't that for home use only? Classrooms
would be public. I've also shown parts of "Fantasia" (for example when
presenting Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring"), but are we OK in this?
Sometimes I absolutely hate the copyright laws.

We're all in this together...
