Video Media, Public Performance
Most videocassettes and DVS's purchased by the St. Charles City-County Library District are not cleared for public performance. Utilizing such tapes in settings outside of the home may be a violation of U.S. copyright law. Video media known to have public performance clearance shall be clearly marked. The District issues other media strictly for in-home use and shall not be responsible for penalties associated with misuse by a patron.
Schools may have limited public performance rights under the Copyright Act if the medium is used as part of face-to-face instruction; however the Library District shall not be responsible for any determination that such rights exist and liability or penalty for misuse shall remain totally with the school and/or teacher utilizing such media.
