I have never seen that and I have been purchasing video materials for
over 23 years. Is that legal? I have received printed contracts before
which outline usage but that is different.

Hey, everyone.
=09
I'd love to know what you all think of this. A well-respected
(by me, too!) company from whom I've purchased many times in the past
has always had a distinction between college/corporate use and public
library/high school use in its pricing. This I know is their
perogative, because it's simple price tiering with no kind of claim made
about usage needs.
=09
However. Now there is a "home video" option at, not
surprisingly, a lower price yet. Here's the warning one gets when one
puts such an item in one's cart:

* HOME VIDEO - program comes with a warning against
classroom use periodically during the program - more information=20

The "more information" link provides this:

Home video purchasers may use the videos in non-institutional
contexts only. At two points during home video videocassettes script
will appear over the image stating that this videocassette has been
purchased for home use only and may not be used in class, circulated in
an institutional library or be exhibited to the general public.=20
=09
=09

Now, I just don't think this can be done. Once a "home use"
option has been offered up, it's fair game for libraries whose
collections are used only for 1) individual checkout or 2) classroom
use. WE DON'T NEED PPR in our case, because this will be used in only
those two ways I've just mentioned, and we are COVERED by the
face-to-face teaching exemption. Or is the insertion of this script in
the video supposed to act as a "contract" between seller & buyer?
=09
Am I wrong to feel justified in purchasing the "Home Video"
option?

------_=_NextPart_001_01C6D813.D9F269AE-- 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.
