Hello All,

Our library purchased a copy of Twenty-Four Eyes, a film distributed by =
Panorama Distributions in Hong Kong. The DVD case has the following =
language:
"The copyright proprietor has licensed the film (including its sound =
track) comprised in this videodisc for private home use only. All other =
rights are reserved. The definition of home use excludes the use of this =
videodisc at locations such as Clubs, Coaches, Hospitals, Hotels, Oilrigs, =
Prisons and Schools. Any unauthorized copying, editing, exhibition, =
renting, exchanging, hiring, lending, public performance diffusion and/or =
broadcast of this videodisc or any part thereof is strictly prohibited, is =
an infringement of copyright and any result in legal liability. This =
videodisc is sold / hired on the condition that it is not be sold, hired, =
exported, re-supplied or distributed by way of trade without a proper =
license from the copyright proprietor."
Should I be worried about this? Would this prevent us from adding it to =
our circulating collection? Has anyone else ran into this?

Thanks,

--=__Part5B7CB1C0.0__=-- 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.
