Subject: Public Performance Rights/Licensing of videos

We are struggling with the issue of whether we should be purchasing =
videos and DVDs with performance rights, and looking into the licensing =
issue for performance as well. Has anyone acquired feature films with =
public performance rights, or obtained licensing? Is there such a thing =
as blanket rights for library systems? Is there such a thing as a =
cooperative agreement between libraries and other organizations to make =
this more affordable? We'd like to be able to show feature films =
occasionally at some of our libraries but the pricing seems prohibitive. =
Any advice or information on this topic would be much appreciated.
