Well I think it'd be great if there'd be more discussion on list, I think
its appropriate, because this is an issue I think many of us are facing
more and more and specific comments, ideas and experiences from both
vendors and video users on this list would be very interesting and helpful.
I think.

To make it more specific: are any video librarians/centers on this list
currently licensing campus and/or system wide digital rights to documentary
films (which otherwise they would buy on VHS or DVD) and storing the files
on a server, and if so what formats/prices/restrictions are they
using/agreeing to?

Many vendors are confronting these issues now, and your input would be very
helpful and appreciated.
