A murky copyright issue or not, the availability and use of "video
grabs" from DVD are essential to modern film and TV pedagogy. What are
the legal ramifications of their use in teaching and academic
publishing? (Sez he who is developing an article which makes substantial
use of video grabs). Although the production/distribution companies own
the film rights, does not the individual who actually 'grabs' the image
and then transfers it into some kind of presentational format equally
'producing' the image - i.e. what the prod-dist companies own is the
moving picture image, while we are producing a specific still.
