No - last copy preservation is provided for in the copyright
law. It is section somehting "H" and transfer to a new
medium is provided for to accomodate last copy preservation
in the DMCA. Restriction on last copy preservation provoide
that it is only used for research and not loaned, displayed
or used outside the library.

I'll find the citation in a couple of minutes . . .
