Programs broadcast to the general public may be taped, but the instructor may only show the tape during the first ten consecutive school days after it is made and only in a classroom or similar place devoted to instruction. After the ten day classroom use period expires, the tape may be used only for evaluation to determine if it should be purchased for permanent use. No later than 45 calendar days after the tape was made, it must be destroyed.

All copies of the "off-air" recording must include the copyright notice on the broadcast program, as recorded.
