Almost all indie doc distributors that I know of (and Films for the
Humanities, too) will do this. It's important to ask for it (or
haggle for it).

All,
 
Does anyone have a list of vendors/distributors, etc. who give a discount for second copies or for replacements for damaged, lost or stolen copies of their VHS or DVDs that a library (or other institution) has previously purchased?  I seem to remember that Bullfrog films does this (25 dollars replacement cost), but am not sure if there are others that offer this (either for a range of the films that sell, or for all of them).  If anyone has a list, could they please reply?  Also, if any of the vendors, makers or distributors offer this feature to libraries (or others), I would like to hear from you.  I expect this may be of interest to others on the list, so please reply to the entire list.
 
Thanks,
