Copyright at ALA Midwinter

Then it was on to a new copyright discussion group. Lots about copyright and multimedia, and quite a bit of the blind leading the blind as usual (I speak as one of the blind.)

But we probably need to have clearer guidelines about public performance rights (PPR) (outside of the classroom) on campus. Maybe take a look at Swank and add local notes about PPR to catalog records when we already have the rights.

It's great to hear about what's going on at ALA Midwinter.
Since the question of public performance rights comes up a lot when I purchase films, I took a look at the Swank site and then made a quick call to the company to get an idea of their pricing structure.
I've bookmarked this site for future reference. Thanks!
