I hate to be the spoilsport but there are NO factors for illegal copies. If
the item is not a legal copy ( as these appear not to be and I am guessing
they don=B9t look pre-recorded) you should not touch them. There is the off
air exception but that lasts I think 30 days so not gonna work.
Every single section of 106-110 of the copyright code refers to legal

This is my first post to the list, so I apologize= if I am asking a very basic question.
We recently had an instructor bring us a couple v= ideos in VHS format. One is a copy of a hallmark channel movie from the 80s = and the other is a copy of a feature film from the 80s. She would like these= placed on traditional in-house reserve that would be available to students = for in room use during the spring semester. Our preliminary research shows t= hat these are not available for purchase.
What do I need to consider when determining if th= ese can be placed on reserve? Is it the four factors that I consider for our= traditional paper-based reserve items and/or something else?
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

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.
