This is probably a question that is best geared at the distributors or
academics on the list-

What do you think of the possibilities of this scenario? I'm
considering applying for an institutional grant and need some advice.

Professor V. regularly teaches a semester-long class to approximately
150 students. 8 videos from a variety of distributors (NOT feature
films) are screened in full, face-to-face, during regularly scheduled
class times. Could rights be obtained to stream the entire 8 films on
the class website every time the course is offered? Could rights be
obtained on a semester-to-semester basis? The course management system
would only permit registered students to view the films-who presumably
already saw the entire film during their class but need to review for
papers/tests. If possible, how much time and cost do you estimate in
obtaining these rights? Or-would you just go ahead and not clear rights
in this case?

=20

As always, thanks in advance for your advice & wisdom,

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.
