Dear colleagues,

=20

I am trying to explain to a patron why we cannot, legally, buy a VHS
title and transfer it to DVD ourselves. I know it's somewhere in the
Copyright Law, I think it is in section 106 or 108 but I would
appreciate a firm citation or link, which will end the discussion. I
have searched the archives, but, wow, there's just so many hit on
copyright, format etc that I don't quite have time to wade through all
our stimulating discussions!

Thanks for your help,

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.
