Subject: [Videolib] Pedal Magic eVideo
I have had the most bizarre emails back and forth with a guy selling a video
on how to ride a bike. He is selling the video only as a Digital Rights
However, he thinks that our patrons should checkout the CD from us and then
pay his company a fee for a license to "unlock" the disc for use.
Below is the conversion I had with him via email. Is it just me or is he
completely off his rocker. I understand protecting your property but this
Tulsa City-County Library
It is unfortunate for your patrons that you don't get the point. You will,
of course, be seeing more such digital rights management in the future by
content providers, not less.
We are a for-profit company.
Take care. --Reginald

What is the point of having a CD available for checkout when our library
patron then has to pay to use the disc? This makes no sense to me.
Everything in our public library is free to use for all customers. If this
is the case I don't want this item and request that you take me off your
list of libraries with the pedal magic CD.
