Actually I heard that this year the networks received multiple feeds, so
they could present the debate as they saw fit. So how the debate was
presented on one network could be slightly different than another due to
directorial decisions. (not that I actually saw the debate, I watched
the Daily Show breakdown afterwards instead) I do not think this would
have an impact on the copyright-ness, more of an FYI. It would be
interesting to see a comparison of the presentations though.

I am pretty sure that the the debates are in the public domain and

that you can keep them forever.

I'm guessing it's OK as long as the tape does not include the network
pre-debate talk or post-debate analysis. The debate itself comes to all

networks through a single video feed, and is likely considered what the

FCC would call 'public service announcements.' Since there is no
economic gain to be had from this broadcast, I'm thinking this passes
the criteria for fair use. The tape would not be shown after the 10 day

Any thoughts?

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 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!
