That is why you should deal with a nice companies like Kino, Milestone, New
Yorker etc. I could never figure this one out myself and am always amused
when a library that has licensed something from us calls up to ask if it is
ok to use a still, ad slick etc. My first reaction is what a stupid
question but than I remember that they are used to dealing with companies
that don't allow it. In fairness to both Modern Sound & MPLC they are
apparently acting under orders from the studios the contract from who must
be afraid that your showing of MARY POPPINS is going to keep those paying
customers away from MONSTERS Inc.
