As a distributor who is getting AWAY from inflated PPR, I want to chime in.
We have very few titles that have an inflated PPR price attached to it and I
believe the highest PPR is $150. Its been hard to fully get away with this
when we are dealing with more established filmmakers or producers who have
made quite a livelihood from this inflated prices. We have many other titles
with an inflated PPR of $50-$70...which seems relatively more "reasonable"
BUT we are ultimately trying to get away from this type of pricing structure
altogether as we feel its going the way of the dinosaurs for many of the
reasons cited here. We get lots of great feedback from librarians who are
thrilled to be able to buy 10 of our DVDs at $25 each vs one at $250 - and
we hope many more of you will pay attention to our releases!

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.
