Fair Use: As long as you view or listen to these files as part of a class session or by yourself, you are covered under fair use.  

Public Performance: We do not have public performance rights for any of these streaming videos or audios. For example, a group of students who watch one of these videos during a college student club or organizational meeting would not be covered under fair use. That would be considered a public performance.
