Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio A loophole in movie copyright laws has a video rental store in Orem renting edited movies once again.

Daniel Thompson used to run a Clean Flix store, but legal issues forced it to shut down last September. But now the store is back open under the name Flix Club because movies can be edited for educational purposes.

Daniel Thompson, store owner: "Business has been amazing. I've been really surprised. The clientele that I once had with Clean Flix stores has come back."

Thompson says the law allows edited movies for educational purposes so they can be shown at schools and for other organizations.

Daniel Thompson: "I run every day as if I could get a phone call and be shut down."

Thompson says he knows the loophole is a shaky one and he could get an order to close the store at any time. However, he says there is still a strong market for edited movies.
