We got Weapons ofthe Spirit from First Run/Icarus. about 4 years ago.
I had proposed to our adcquisitions department to always buy pub. performance rights so that any campus group could use any of our tapes without
haveing to get permission each time one was used.
This was vetoed, however, and Weapons of the Spirit was the example
of why this was not a good policy.
The librarians felt that the campus groups should be responsible for
getting pub. perf. rights themselves.
We explained to Firs Run that the film was only for classroom use
or patrons to checkout, and they agreed to let us buy at the lower price.
