I have ordered from ABC News online and have not received a 'site license'
notice. Guess this is new (and, I hope short-lived).

When we received the video it came with a paper informing us that every 2 years we have to pay $25.00 for a site license. I called ABC News to tell them the website advertising for this video does not say anything about this site license. ABC News Videos said that every two years they would send out an invoice for the $25.00, unless I returned the video today. If we decide we do not want the video tape after 2 years we still have to pay for the license. They do not want the tapes back, they just want the $25.00.
