Okay, I'm in need of some clarification here. Penn State also holds a
large number of titles that are forever out of print, but we've been under
the assumption that we could not transfer these -- 16mm particularly -- to
VHS or DVD without tracking down and seeking permission from the film maker
when the original distributor is no longer in business. In addition, we've
been under the impression that we can't legally transfer from 16mm to VHS
in these instance since new 16mm equipment is still available for purchase,
even though we want to move in the direction of no longer support 16mm???

3/4" is cut and dried, but not 16mm.

If this isn't the case, it will certainly make our lives much less
stressful in the next year or so.
