Dear Rick,
It's not that simple. A lot of the illegal sites are purposely based in
countries (such as Russia, though not to just pick on them) where the
ability to go after these creeps is not very easy. I usually send my
"worries" to a friend at a studio legal department (let's face it --
whenever these sites have one of my films, they always have 100s of theirs)
and they're able to stop some pirates, but not others. And let's face it,
the whole concept of "viral" means that it takes off and is impossible to
contain. And in the internet world, that's for better (Tina Fey on SNL) or
worse.
Dennis

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.
