    In my district copyrights are very narrowly interpreted ie. the letter
of the law. I could not show videos unless they were purchased/borrowed from
an educational source or library with broadcast rights for a group--whether
commercial or non commercial in intent.

    Again, a school is not a home setting. Different rules apply about what
copyrighted materials we can show the students. Disney videos from home
were on the ban list during the time I taught.
