Actually Stan I spoke to another librarian last night who confirmed that
the section you sited was put in specifally for audio recording and has
never been allowed to be used for other formats. In any case it is a VERY
SLIPPERY SLOPE. What is detiorating ? What is a fair price. I have heard
many librarians argue that either they just do not like the format they
have ( not that they actually can not use it ie they want tape when they
have 16mm) or they think the price is too much. I dare any of you to take
an old detiorating Disney short and transfer it because you can not get it
on tape. I still do not see any LEGAL arguement for tranfering any
copywrited material without the owners permission, though again I am not
unsympathetic to the problem.
