I am familiar with copyright law, and small vs. grand rights, and all of that jazz. Many high schools regularly violate these laws, either using music in performances without permission or by recording and then distributing performances, including not only theater but music and dance. There seems to be an industry attitude of turning a blind eye towards schools?
I am trying to prevent an individual in my facility from committing a gross violation of copyright law. Is anyone aware of any cases where a school or district has actually been sued, particularly for selling or distributing copies?
I figure if RIAA will go after someone for downloading a handful of songs, they must have gone after someone for selling mass DVDs.
