The law says in Title 17, Chapter 1, 108 , Section C 1: "the library
or archives has, after a reasonable effort, determined that an unused
replacement cannot be obtained at a fair price*" *I did not see
anywhere in the law where you obtained the copy was specified or "the
market for rare items is not regulated by copyright nor does it have any
impact on it." So, would you please enlighten me to where this appears
in the U.S. Code. I have always assumed that when I needed to replace an
out-of-print item (printed or media) still covered by copyright that
searching with out-of-print dealers was covered under reasonable effort.
