As long as you check for visible damage when the video is checked
in/out, you can enforce payment for destruction do to physical problems
like a broken or melted tape.

Playback problems are usually a wash. Who's to say that the last
person's VCR wasn't the one that krinkled the tape that caused the break
that caused...

Subject: [Videolib] videocassette damage

We are having a major problem with videocassette damage. Can anyone out
there
advise on how to "point the finger" so to speak since there seems to be
several
ready-made loopholes in the user taking responsibility for damaging the
tape--"I
didn't do it; it was already damaged, etc, etc.

Will checking the tape after the viewing help?

Thanks
