How does fair use apply to computer programs?  If videos can only be used for
instructional purposes, does the same standard apply for computer games?  I
walked into a classroom today and found several students playing a computer
game.  There was one disk, loaded on one computer, so I'm not worried about
that part of the copyright question.  I certainly question the validity of
playing games during school time (they were finished with their work and were
receiving a "reward") but if I'm going to question this teacher's use of time
it must be from a copyright standpoint, not from a educational standpoint.
