I think they have eased some of those restrictions. When we purchased "Fish" it's intended use was for circulation to other libraries to use for staff training. I made that intention very clear to the company before we bought it and they had no problem with it.

When I initially inquired about the "Fish" video, I was told that it was
not for intended for a Circulation Library, but for an "end user". I think
they've stepped away from that attitude now, but I previously was not left
under the impression that my copy was "allowed" to be circulated.

Just my 2.0375 cents adjusted for inflation, taxes, and cost of living.
