I'll add another distributor voice to the discussion of transfer to
different formats. I would hope that anyone who wants to replace 16mm or
3/4" with VHS would make every effort to locate and contact the
distributor not only because of copyright issues, but also because of
the quality of the image. A deteriorating 3/4" tape or film does not
make a very good master for duplication, and a bad VHS dub in
circulation can reflect very negatively on the producer and distributor.
I would encourage other distributors to make replacement tapes available
for a reasonable price to avoid having customers resort to doing this
kind of transfer.
