Bruce Conner has made it absolutely clear that he has not found a lab that
will do his work in the way he sees fit. Therefore, no new prints of his
films will be made.

Basically, we have a situation where the artist/copyright owner makes
decisions that impact a whole bunch of people. It's his work and he can do
whatever he wants with it whether we agree or not.
