[Videolib] Copying CD-ROMS

A patron suggested:

"Burn Copies of and loan out only copies of CDROM Media.

If it is permissible within current copyright laws, I suggest that copies be
made of all new and existing CDROM material in the library's collection, and
that only copies be made available for patron loan. Therefore if the copy of
the CDROM is lost or damaged, it could be quickly replaced with minimal
replacement cost and inconvenience to patrons as well".

IS THIS KOSHER COPYRIGHT?

They also said they knew of a library's YA dept. that circulated ONLY the
copies of their Disney movies that they made, not the originals. Kosher?

Thanks for any and all replies,

Gena Z.
