Do museum screenings of a print that they own constitute fair use? I would have thought not but I recently read something about how entrepreneur (to be kind) Wade Williams claimed that the Museum of Modern Art was infringing his rights by showing some 50s sf B-movies that he claimed ownership for. This isn't a good example because Williams apparently didn't actually own the copyright and MOMA ended up paying him simply to avoid bad publicity and get him off their (its?) back. But MOMA said that it never paid anything for its screenings which is why I'm wondering if there's a fair use exception or if MOMA is just in a strong position that most people would never sue them.
