donated videos from documentary producer
- October 6, 2005 @ 8:02amkatmuggle says:The producer of several documentaries made for television broadcast donated a collection of videos he produced to our library. These videos are items he burned onto DVD himself, not the packaged version one would get if buying them retail. Are we violating copyright law if we add the DVDs to our collection?
