Question:
I was looking through some old contracts for 16mm films we have, and
noticed that some of them were "leased for the life of the print." I'm
relatively new in the media world, and wasn't around when any of the
16mm films were obtained. How does a "lease for life" differ from a
sale? I had heard a rumor that it affects how we can handle our
collection: for example, if we needed to weed our collection for
whatever reason, we could not discard or donate our prints. For my
information, can anyone substantiate or refute this?
In gratitude,
LeeAnne K.
