hi all

I'm on the ref desk tonite and bored and so I'll bug all of you.

For those of you playing ball with Sharestream, I have questions. Sounds
like they're putting forward the pitch that serving copyrighted content on
their platform is ok because of the "robust" security/DRM they can

"ShareStream's technology also offers universities a platform that affords
legal, piracy-protected handling of copyrighted content. Recognizing that
universities’ distribution of digital media was significantly impeded by
concerns for piracy of content as well as by issues of compliance with the
legal framework surrounding digital distribution of content for
educational purposes, namely the Teach Act and Fair."

Uh...am I reading this incorrectly?

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.
