[Videolib] Legal copy??!

Hi all,

I've been asked to buy a dvd of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,
directed by Kim Bartley & Donnacha O'Briain, produced by David Power.

The only place where I can find a copy is on venezuelasolidarity.org.uk,
where I presumably can get one by making a contribution to the cause of
Venezuelan revolution. However, the site clearly states that another
company, Power Pictures, has the distribution rights and has asked this
group not to sell the dvd. The site goes on to say that they did cease
selling the dvds, but have learned that Power Pictures has no immediate
plans to release the title, and therefore the site is giving away copies,
in exchange for a contribution.

It isn't clear where they got their copies in the first place, but I'm
assuming this is all illegal! Does anyone have any further light to shed
on the situation? Is there a legitimate copy out there somewhere? This
being Wesleyan, I know my requester will exhort me to support Venezuelan
solidarity, so before I get involved in being diplomatic-but-firm, I
thought I'd just make very sure that there isn't a copy out there that I
can buy with a clear conscience!

Thanks for your help!
