Seems odd. Even if Trip FINALLY went PD wouldn't any Melies made after that
still be copyrighted or did the set stop with that. Now they could release
the set HERE because the stuff was PD but they could not release it in
France so are you saying it is released in France ?

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.
