(KMOV.com) – Copyright laws can sometimes be confusing. It’s not always clear when showing and watching movies is a violation, but most people wouldn’t guess nursing home residents gathering for a movie night would cross the line.

He called News 4’s Mike Colombo who was able to help make sure the show will go on.
