Yes, I've been curious about this as well, since we have a set of Eyes on
the Prize videos that were bought with PPR.

If a library owns a set of Eyes on the Prize that was bought with Public
Performance Rights, have those rights of public performance now expired?
I have always been under the impression that the rights that are
purchased usually are for the life of the tape (or DVD).

Best,
Myles

I think Jessica is right here. Though I wish this were available for
purchase, I have real problems with this going on.

Subject: [Videolib] Eyes on the Prize

Just a few thoughts on the idea of downloading & showing this.
Is EYES ON THE PRIZE in a superspecial category of cultural significance
that it merits this or would the same apply so something in a very
similar
circumstance the HOLLYWOOD- THE PIONEERS series ? Who gets to decide
which
films are so important that copyright does not apply ? Also the idea of
public showings would indicate that the organizers believe any film
should
be allowed to be shown to an audience irrespective of copyright.
What I found MOST interesting was the web sites claim that showing this
was NOT an act of civil disobedience but essentially a public right.

If they are so convinced that copyright law is in essence morally wrong
to
prevent EYES ON THE PRIZE from being in print and available for public
showings ,THAN WHY ISN"T DOWNLOADING it an act of Civil Disobedience ?
It
is clearly an illegal act but if their belief is that the law is WRONG
than
surely they should be willing to acknowledge and accept the consequences
of
such an act (i.e. the possibility of legal action) I find this a HUGE
cop
out. Kind of ironic given that the film in question is about be willing
to
take physical risks for their beliefs and these people don't even want
to
acknowledge legal risks.

Given the multitude of rights complications on EYES ON THE PRIZE (
singling
out singing Happy Birthday was red herring in terms of the rights
issues)
it is kind of easy to go after it and suggest a protest. However if this
group is so convinced that copyright should NOT prevent important films
from
being available for both public & private use they ought to be willing
to
show SONG OF THE SOUTH or perhaps downloading & showing Charles
Burnett's
wonderful KILLER OF SHEEP. The first is being kept permanently off the
market by Disney, the second involves a lot of expensive & uncleared
music.
If they are so sure of legal & moral correctness of their position at
least
test it with good old Disney or be willing to screw an independent film
maker.

The idea sounds nice but who gets to decide what is and is not worthy of
copyright protection and under what circumstances ?
