I would be leary of ANY wholesaler claiming PPV on any product it does
not actually own itself. I do not know Quality books. I think A&E does
allow PPR on their products as a rule. Kultur would be interesting since I
wonder if some of the producers they have licenced from even have or
licence for PPR. In many cases this may be an honest mistake but I have had
people telling customers they have PPR on our titles which is course not
true. As a rule the only place to get PPR is from the actual
owner/distributor of the title. PPR on FEATURE films is not generally
speaking very difficult since it is either exspensive or in the case of
virtually all studio pictures not available EXCEPT for various forms on
limited period umbrella licences. I realize that educational films often
come with PPR but feature films are VERY COMPLICATED and there is no one
stop
