digitizing Video Collection
- October 18, 2006 @ 2:03pmLaurieKLew says:I read the query of 09-06-2006 concerning conversion of a video collection. We are facing the same question; can I assume, given MKardick's reply, that if the videos are NOT available on DVD we have the right to copy them? What about videos that may eventually be re-released in DVD?
