I have been following the dialogue about video streaming and finding it
very interesting. I especially appreciate Jessica's input. She pretty much
answered the questions that have been going around in my head. The vice
chancellor that I report to has discussed wanting to digitize our entire
video collection, VHS, Laserdisc and DVD and put them all on a server for
distribution. His idea was for the future, but I knew the responsibility of
getting copyright permission would fall entirely on my shoulders and would
be an impossible task. One that I didn't want to undertake. I was even
wondering if I should consider early retirement! Thanks Jessica for
offering your expert insight. It will help me when I have to address this
issue with the higher-ups.
