originally aired on TV in 1981 , called "American Held Hostage" done by
Pierre Salinger. =20
Any suggestions, please let me know.

ABC is part of Disney empire. They are historically at the front of
expanding IP rights at the expense of society, consumers, future =
creators,
current competitors, you name it. Others follow by necessity. Please
resist and buy something from another more reasonable company. Jed

I have run into this before with ABC News. Returned a tape to them once,
because of this.

Many ABC News shows are also sold by Films for the Humanities & Sciences
(http://www.films.com) which does NOT make purchasers sign this =
agreement.

Incidentally, we have had a purchase order hanging with ABC for many =
months
because they will not ship until the order is complete. I've limited =
myself
to calling once a month on this order; the last two times the person at =
ABC
said they would get back to me the same day on when I could expect
fulfillment. My next call is scheduled for October 5 ...
