"491" by Vilgot Sjoman was earlier than Curious Yellow and the court
decision went all the way to the Supreme Court. I believe this was a Janus

time.

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.
