Hi Steven,

, that is why they charge the home viewer 19.95 and you $295, because you =
are paying for PPR. Our media collection circulates too. The campus =
funnels copyright questions to me and I try to "get to yes" for them or =
come up with another legal alternative.

--=__PartECC8A219.0__=-- 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.
