Dear Videolib...I'm sure a number of media centers taped live news
footage of the terrorist attacks on the WTC last Tuesday. My question is,
are those recordings of live news events of national significance OK to
retain and add to a media collection or archive? I seem to recall from
past discussions that it was permissible to record and keep live news
events which were not edited or presented in a programmed documentary
format such as 60 Minutes. Any video-gurus who can offer wisdom or
clarification on this matter please reply. Thanks.
