My community operates its own municipal cable channel that is staffed with full-time employees. The municipal channel occasionally runs old black and white commercial movies on weekends. I have not seen this in my previous communities, and it seems like a strange use for municipal resources. Before I look into this, I would greatly appreciate knowing what is happening in other communities. Maybe this is a commonly accepted practice that I am just ignorant of.
I know that the municipal channel is careful to comply with copyrights, but I will make certain on that, too.
