The Maroon ESTABLISHED 1923 VOL. 75 NO. 19 Loyola University New Orleans FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1997 TV giants talk family at Loyola By ALLISON TEMPLET News Editor Television executives, school children and New Orleans police officers, but relatively few people from the Loyola community, filed into Nunemaker Hall Monday to be part of the audience for a cable special featuring media giants like Ted Turner, vice chairman of Time Warner, Inc., and Reed Hunt, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Huge lights, teleprompters and professional cameramen transformed Nunemaker into a production studio for The American Family and Television: A National Town Meeting, which will air simultaneously on nine cable channels April 7. The program had as host Linda Ellerbee and was produced by her company. Lucky Duck Productions, out of New York City. The panel included notable figures in the television industry like Turner and Hunt, as well as Marcy Carsey, partner of Carsey-Werner; Leslie Moonves, president of CBS Entertainment; and John Mandel, senior vice president of Gray Advertising. In addition, seated in the audience were the presidents of cable channels like MTV, Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel. The program brought together network programmers, producers, advertisers, government regulators and viewers to discuss concerns among American families about the quality of television coming into their homes. It will begin a cable initiative called Kids and Family Week. Kristine David, director of Public Affairs, said Lucky Duck Productions paid the university a location fee, but she would not give the amount because it could hinder negotiations with other companies in the future. "It was a fair amount," she said. Lucky Duck Productions also paid for services they used while at Loyola such as Public Safety officers and Physical Plant crews. Originally nearly every seat was reserved, but only about two-thirds of the room filled. The audience was then asked to move to the front rows, and the production crew went looking for more By PATRICK CONDON Turner, Carsey, Moonves, Mandel and Hunt discuss families and television in Nunemaker on Monday. Copyright laws remain misunderstood by many By ROSE FRENCH Copy Editor Copyright infringement remains one of the most misunderstood, complex and violated of laws. Often mired in strict, complicated policy restrictions, copyright laws are breached on almost a daily basis and are often encouraged to be broken, as evidenced by the widespread use and w Breaking * TPE CodE ?art 3 of 5 selling of double-deck tape players and video recorders specifically designed to tape copyrighted material from the airwaves. Although the Copyright Act of 1976 was passed to punish the copying of published material without the permission of the copyright holder, section 107 of the Copyright Revision Ac! established the fair-use doctrine, which allows for some copyrighted material to be copied in certain circumstances. Under the four-pronged fair-use doctrine, the character and purpose of the use of copyright material is first questioned — whether the material is being used for nonprofit educational or commercial purposes. Secondly, the nature of the copyright material is questioned. The amount of copyright material used is also taken into account when deciding what comes under fair use. Finally, the effect of the use of the copyrighted material upon ihe potential market is closely looked at.

Publishing question continues ANALYSIS By NEAL FALGOUST Managing Editor The role of university professors has always carried with it a certain ambiguity. On the one hand they are supposed to excel at teaching and advising, but on the other, they are expected to serve as leaders in their field through scholarship and publication. This ambiguity exists even at Loyola University where professors have three responsibilities: teaching, scholarship and community service. And in light of the recent stipulations set out for the reaccreditation of the College of Business, professors campus-wide now face the issue commonly referred to in academic circles as "publish or perish," and the question they are asking is: Should universities require professors to publish? This debate has separated many Loyola faculty members into two camps: those who feel Loyola must stress scholarship and publication in order to become a leading comprehensive university in the nation, and those who believe Loyola must stay true to its roots as a Jesuit institution dedicated to teaching and community service. Joel Rosenthal, chairman of Committee C on College and University Teaching, Research and Publication for the American Association for University Professors and history professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, says that university faculties around the nation have struggled with this issue for some time now. "It is a big issue right now, but most campuses have worked it out by now, and it's publish," he said. Rosenthal also said that the AAUP position is universities should expect professors to perform in a!' .'!\ree areas of their job description, but that the university must be willing to adjust work loads to meet that end. The issue at stake for Loyola revolves around the University Planning Team's goal of becoming a leading See SHOW, Pg. 6 See COPYRIGHT, Pg. 5 See PUBLISH, Pg. 4 See SGA, Pg. 5 ■If Robert F.
