Gary, isn't the third price you cite precisely what you are complaining about? I.e. forcing institutions to pay for PPR whether they need it or not? In principle, there are only 2 kinds of purchases one needs to make: with or without performance rights (and certainly it would be handy to buy some items with PPR up front and not have to worry about it later). Whether one is purchasing as an individual or as an institution shouldn't make a difference, should it? --Judy

A simple request to all involved:

It's easy enough (and the honest thing to do) in a catalog to offer three

1. Home video (does not include performance rights)
2. Film with performance rights
3. Institutional buyers (which includes performance rights)

The above acknowledges pricing based on buyer type and avoids making it
sound as if institutions automatically require performance rights.


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.
