I'm considering going to my first NMM as my only travel next fiscal
year. I was an art librarian, and very active in ARLIS/NA, before
moving to administration in my current position. I've been acting
director of our Film/Media library for almost 3 years now (and will
continue for the foreseeable future due to the current economy) and I
feel a closer affinity to this group than to any of the access services
groups I belong to. Thanks for the fabulous collegiality, Video-Lib
friends!

I agree. NMM was always my first choice for a conference that gave me
and my media program tangible benefits.

I never attended ALA though, so I can't speak to that.

That thread seemed a bit crowded but left things dangling. I
particularly
object to the idea that the Pirate was just like Google and that to
compare
them to thieves was not justified. I think it might help if folks
googled
some of the news articles on the trial. I found this part of one
particularly interesting

"These cases weren't decided by some local judge, either. The Grokster
case
went all the way to the Supreme
Court<http://arstechnica.com/old/content/2005/06/5042.ars>,
where the seminal MGM v. Grokster decision said that sites could not
avoid
all liability for copyright infringement simply by arguing that they
have
some legal uses.

This was the famous *Sony* defense, from the case which legalized
Betamax/VCR sales. It survived both federal court and the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals, but the Supremes found that a *Sony* defense did have
some
limits:

One who distributes a device with the object of promoting its use to
infringe copyright, as shown by clear expression or other affirmative
steps
taken to foster infringement, going beyond mere distribution with
knowledge
of third-party action, is liable for the resulting acts of infringement
by
third parties using the device, regardless of the device's lawful
uses...

Nothing in Sony requires courts to ignore evidence of intent to promote
infringement if such evidence exists. It was never meant to foreclose
rules
of fault-based liability derived from the common law. Where evidence
goes
beyond a product's characteristics or the knowledge that it may be put
to
infringing uses, and shows statements or actions directed to promoting
infringement, Sony's staple-article rule will not preclude liability...

On the record presented, respondents' unlawful objective is
unmistakable.
The classic instance of inducement is by advertisement or solicitation
that
broadcasts a message designed to stimulate others to commit violations.
"

Whole article is here
http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2009/04/why-no-one-should-be-sho
cked-by-the-pirate-bay-verdict.ars

There are other articles which stress that Pirate Bay was nothing like
Google and was indeed set up for the purpose of helping people illegally
download material and ignored all requests from rights holders to cease
doing so.

        Hello, everyone!

        I would like to call on your collective wisdom, please!

        I am looking for documentaries on sexual abuse that meet the
following criteria:

        1. Examines individual cases
        2. Is not overly graphic/explicit (could be viewed by undergrads
at a conservative, small town community college)
        3. Is currently available for purchase
        4. Costs less than $50.00

        Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
        Cecilia

Dear folks:

We are new to working with videos in relation to our website.

Recently we acquired video on DVD (video streaming edition). We are
being told by our institutional IT people that the video cannot be made
available for access by our Library users through a website without
being converted to Flash for a Flash server environment. We are being
urged to purchase our videos in Flash format.

We are trying to sort out whether Flash is commonly available as a
purchased video format - our feeling is that it is not. Also we are
wondering if it is really necessary to convert to Flash, or whether this
is more an expression of ITs interest in moving campus video into a
Flash server environment.)

We would most appreciate your advice or referrals to other source that
could advise us on this.

Please contact me offline (see below). If the list expresses interest, I
will summarize replies to the list. Thanks in advance for your help! kst

I am trying to buy the DVD version of Frontline's Assault on Gay
America: The life and death of Billy Jack. Apparently it was available
as late as 2006 if Worldcat is to be believed. However, I cannot find it
for sale on the site now.
