Re: [Videolib] Showing of recent release film

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has a web page on this topic:

Performance Rights for Copyrighted Videorecordings

The page was last updated in 2005, though it still appears to be helpful
as a general resource or introduction to video PPR for teachers and librarians.

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.
