Here we go again....

Sorry Jessica, you are dead wrong.

IF the other provisions of section 108 are met (including *damage* OR =
deterioration OR obsolesence - AND unable to purchase an unused copy at =
a reasonable price, after a REASONABLE search) then a copy CAN be made =
by a library.

Section 108 also specifies that DIGITAL copies may be made as well.

The law does NOT say that a copy has to be in the original format. =
(That would negate the whole issue of obsolesence, wouldn't it?)

The law does NOT require "tracking down" the copyright holder and =
seeking permission. Provided the other provisions are met the =
permission is set in the LAW.

Film distributors contractual negotiations with rights holders should =
not be confused with the specific rights (AND responsibilities and =
limitations) the LAW spells out for Libraries and the contents they have =
legally acquired and have RIGHTS to preserve.

Um you can't just make a DVD if your VHS is damaged
Without going through EVERYTHING again , you would first have to
track down rights, check with rights holder etc and EVEN if
after all that you thought this was OK , you could ONLY make
VHS copy since it is NOT an "obsolete" format.
Basically you don't get to "upgrade" to a more
"convenient" or easier format.

I can tell you as "rights" holder that we don't have
the right to make DVDs of many of our titles. This all
very complicated & contractual.

Thousands upon thousands of titles that are or were available
in VHS will NEVER be on DVD for a variety of reasons but
others that were never on VHS will come out on DVD

A lot of reasons for this but whatever you do , DON'T get rid
of a VHS unless you are SURE you can purchase a legit DVD

It is far from dead and many films you need and use
will ONLY be available in VHS
