Title: Why Can't I Watch This Video Here ? Copyright Confusion and Performance of Videocassettes & Videodiscs in Libraries
Author: Cochran, Wesley J.
Abstract: This article will discuss the application of copyright law to the viewing of commercially-prepared videocassettes and videodiscs in libraries. The law will be presented through an examination of the relevant statutory provisions and case law in the context of several typical library scenarios involving the viewing of videocassettes and videodiscs in academic, public, and special libraries. Additionally, some possible interpretations of the problems raised and some remedies will be discussed, including suggestions for statutory reform to promote important societal purposes while still protecting the interests of the copyright owner.
