Hulu has not commented on classroom use.

If you have "regular" Hulu access (a subscription service that requires a login), watching the documentary may be within Fair Use guidelines, but bear in mind that you may not do the same thing for another class in another semester. 

If yours is a Hulu Plus account, you must contact Hulu for permission. 

Here are a couple of links that might clarify the law:

This is a page from the Walsh University Copyright Guide http://libguides.walsh.edu/content.php?pid=156817&sid=1764586 and will provide a broad look at copyright and fair use. 

As a reminder, I am a librarian and not a lawyer and we are not supplying legal advice nor is this information intended to replace the advice of legal counsel.

Hope this helps, Kathy Adams, Librarian
