Tis Bearself got it right. You can watch a movie provided by someone else in its entirety for class. Our Ethics professor had us watch Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, and Sling Blade. He offered different “movie times” and we went to a classroom.
If it was a Campus Programming Board activity…in the same room, at the same time… then this would have been illegal. But because it was for academic purposes it was 100% fine.
The professor should not be condoning illegal methods even if his use is legal…that’s my only gripe.
