Anybody else received this message from Swank? Anybody know more about
what they're proposing?

Like the Copyright Clearance Center, they are providing a service but
they aren't exactly proponents of Fair Use (note that Swank's FAQ page
doesn't not mention the classroom face-to-face exemption anywhere).

"...I am with Swank Motion Pictures. I have worked with your University
for a number of years to provide public performance licensing for films.
Swank has most recently obtained the rights to provide movies in an
on-demand environment-more specifically we are now able to license you
to stream movies via your online course management system. We have
found that the demand to view films via course management to support
course curriculums has been growing quite rapidly and we hope that this
new program will be a good solution for many colleges and universities.
We are currently working on a demo of this new product and it should be
complete in the coming weeks-I will be sure to forward the demo along a
that time. In the mean time please do not hesitate to contact me with
any questions if you feel this new opportunity may be of value to your
campus! I would love to discuss how we can tailor this new product to
meet your current and future needs!"

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.
