Greetings to all,
        I have a new teacher here at the school who informed me that he has
spoken to a lawyer and that according to the "2007 Fair Use Act" teachers
are now able to copy shows off air and keep them for as long as needed
,not just 45 days as it was in the past. (However they aren't allowed to
copy complete series of shows)  He also informed that I am allowed to copy
all of my VCR tapes into DVD's for archival purposes and if a tape breaks
that I am then allowed to use the DVD??????  Is this true?

Anybody else heard about changes in the 2007 Copyright Laws?
