Um I don=B9t want to be negative just not sure what you are asking for
I assume you mean a set of guidelines as to what would constitute PPR as
opposed to getting
=B3blanket=B2 rights. The thing =B3blanket=B2 is a term usually associated with the
two big companies (MPLC and the SWANK one)
which offer you a large collection of films you can show publicly for a
fixed period of time and fee.
This thing works fine for basic Hollywood entertainment stuff but does not
cover tens of thousands of docs, foreign and independent films
As for the issue of what constitutes PPR , I don=B9t think it is all that
complicated ( but then I am a distributor) and the law is pretty clear
that unless the film is being used in straight face to face instruction i.e=
a class, any public use would require a license/permission from
the rights holder. I would hope that any policy would be that if a group or
student or professor wants to show a film publicly they
are responsible for clearing the rights which of course in most cases is
going to mean paying someone. I am sure you can give them
guidance on how to do this but I would think the rest is up to them.

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.
