Hi, Judy. Are all the U-Matics in the world deciding to make like
lemmings to the sea this year? We are presently trying to replace
our old, yet valuable, "Baby Jane Doe" from CBS Archives. It is
our 3rd dead U-Matic tape in the past 2 months.

As odious as it is, I wonder if this case-by-case is not the best
approach, coupled with Stan's suggestion to steer faculty away from
out-dated materials. For a legal opinion you are really going
to need a copyright lawyer.
