On the subject of buying videotapes versus taping them from tv, I have

a question: A colleague of mine (who teaches our film course and is

very much into the video scene in general) claims that it's perfectly

legal to tape anything you want to from tv and show it to your classes.

I've argued that that doesn't make sense, at least with videos that are

sold -- e.g., "American Tongues." If it's legal to tape from tv, why

would people buy the tapes?

Another question about "American Tongues": Are there two slightly different

versions of it? I'm almost positive I've seen slightly different versions.

Btw, I agree with the people who have given "American Tongues" glowing

reports. I consider it the best educational videotape I've ever seen --

accurate, enlightening, and fun.
