Well if you are concerned about feature films I wouldn't be. Virtually any
feature film will have the standard notice on the front of the film (F.B.I
warning) Even the ones I sell WITH PPR have this as I can't make a special
batch and the license comes separately. Unless you have a specific reason
to believe student group or prof would be showing it publicly it is not your
responsibility to police this and you won't be liable if they violate
copyright by showing it.
It would be their problem

Dear Video-libbers,

This is my first posting to this list so please be gentle! I looked in the archives and couldn't find anything about copyright notices. Here's my question:

The videos in our smallish collection have been acquired for class instruction, so we haven't been worried about purchasing public performance rights, but as our collection grows and becomes more popular we're concerned about possible public use (non face-to-face-in-a-classroom) by profs or students. What, if anything, do other academic libraries do? Do any libraries place copyright notices on those circulating videos that did not come with public performance rights? If you have such a notice will you share the wording?

Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
