I stand amended. yes, copies recorded off-air can be licensed. PBS
is big on this. Films Inc. used to be. And, on rare occasion,
off-air taping is allowed by the producer from the get-go. Files are
usually maintained on these transactions. I doubt faculty who record
from home have gone to these lengths.

Subject: Unless, of course, an off-air recording license was

Unless, of course, an off-air recording license was purchased by the library for this specific purpose. This does
happen, btw, but most vendors do not offer the option. Still, not all off-air recordings are illegal, some
producers/distributors even allow this WITH PERMISSION.
