Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0764  Re: Performances and BBC

I had a chat with the UBC video librarian a while ago, about getting some plays
I wanted to show to students.

The price for the BBC set is high, but it includes (at least in Canada) an
unlimited right to show them to groups.  The videos in stores, which you can
rent for $2.50 for three days, or purchase for $19.99, cannot be shown to
groups legally.

The point David Schalkwyk raised, about them not being meant for individual
viewing, also explains the strange pricing.  He might be able to extend his
look at the politics of the films, into the politics of copyright!

Cheers,
Sean.
