I am a little confused by this one. I don't get how using the photo is
violation of Digital Millennium Copyright Act. What encryption did they have
to break to use it ?
Might be one of the most interesting copyright Vs Fair Use case I have seen
and I mean that seriously.

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.
