Hi Videolibers,

Someone has asked us to make a copy of a videotape in our collection.
the item in question has a joint copyright, by an individual and a
university (not SFSU, another school).

Am I correct in assuming this third party has to get permission from
BOTH parties, the university and the person, before a copy can be made?

My plan is, if permissions are forthcoming, to make a copy for us, a
copy for each copyright holder, and then let the third party negotiate
with them for whatever they want.

Thanks for any insights. I looked at the Copyright Office website but
didn't get that much help.
