Hi everyone - I have a question that may only really relate to me (or
others in the Southern California area) but I thought I would throw it out
for discussion.

We receive quite a few donations of videos that have been given to
Motion Picture Academy members to preview while voting for the
Academy Awards. They often have some indication of that printed on
the video itself (such as "For your consideration" or similar) and
sometimes include some extra footage about the preview. Does anyone
know of anything prohibiting these videos from being included in a library
collection? Similarly, how do people treat "promotional" CDs which have
a "not for sale" printed on them? I would appreciate any feedback -

Thanks -
