For the scenarios you pose below, do you have specific vendors offering
these sorts of rights that you can cite? I'm curious as to who's doing it,
whether its standardized now or still an "on demand" and more arbitrary
pricing arrangement, that sort of thing. I know that Films for the
Humanities & Sciences is in a position and has begun to offer streaming
rights, but have few details yet because my institution isn't able to
explore the option at this time.
