We have been circulating software for almost 15 years. About 5 years ago,
we went strictly to CD-ROM. We send purchase orders on our letterhead, and
we have never had anyone refuse us an order. We put a label on the
packaging stating that the patron is responsible for following all copyright
regulations. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi all - Have any of you had any problems circulating software? Barring any
explicit licensing restrictions, is circulating CD-ROMs any different than
any other library material? We've had a question about the legality of this
and wondered what others of you have done. Please enlighten me! Thanks, as
always -
