Subject: [Videolib] yet more copyright issues - this time with music!
=20
Hello great collective,
=20
My apologies in advance for bringing up yet another copyright question. =
However, this is not one that I've seen addressed here before, or at =
least it hasn't come up often enough to be seared into my neural =
network! Also, this is not about films, but about music, which I imagine =
many of you dealing with multimedia collections might have some =
experience with, or may at least be able to direct me to an appropriate =
resource.=20
=20
There is a proposal here to put up a jazz related exhibition in the =
library. At the little reception that is planed for the exhibit, the =
organizers would like to play some jazz music in the background. The =
music would come from our own collection of music recordings - none of =
them rare or unique - all of them purchased through library vendors. One =
of the library administrators has asked if there will be any copyright =
issue in this situation.
=20
Can anyone tell me if there would be a copyright issue with the =
situation described? I have looked through the Music Librarians =
Association's copyright page, amongst others, and haven't found =
anything about this type of situation. Mulling it over, it seems to me =
that if we want to play music we own at one of our functions, (which =
will not be recorded, or advertised as a performance or anything, and =
which will require an invitation) than we should be able to do so. I =
don't think there's any problem with, for example restaurant =
owners/staff playing their own CDs in the establishment, is there? This =
seems to be a pretty similar situation.=20
=20
=20
All thoughts on this topic will be much appreciated.
