OK. This will seem like such an elementary question to you media PROS out =
there. I've just avoiding addressing it for a while. It's several =
questions really:=20
=20
1. Does your library purchase DVD feature films WITH public performance =
rights, or do you assume that classroom use is all you really need?
2. I'm sure a copy purchased on Amazon, for example, should not be used =
for public performance, but is it ok for classroom use? =20
3. Where do you typically buy media materials with performance rights? It =
seems a little problematic for feature films. Suggest some good vendors =
to me.=20
4. Where can you license performance rights for videos you already own =
without rights? =20
=20
We haven't worried much about these rights, but lately it's been much more =
of an issue. I'm a BOOK person. All this media stuff is SO problematic! =

--=__Part4B6F06B2.0__=-- VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
