Hello everyone,
Do you know of any distributor who handles the public performance and/or

streaming rights for these two BBC versions of /Sense and Sensibility/?

/Sense and Sensibility/(directed by Rodney Bennet, BBC, 1981)

/Sense and Sensibility/ (directed by John Alexander, BBC/WGBH, 2008)

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

Marilyn

Thanks for all your suggestions, and yet, I'm still going back and forth
with the filmmaker trying to help her understand all the legalese.

On top of that, now I've got another vendor (vtape.org) who is clueless
about PPR and whom I quote, "Public performance is rated on levels of
presentation beyond home use. Circulating and using in College and
University classrooms is actually a level of public performance rights
and requires a rate that reflects this type of purchase."

Therefore may I beseech someone to write up an explanation addressed to
filmmakers and film distributors that clearly and simply states what
PPR, home-use, lending, the TEACH act etc. means in relation to
libraries?  It would be wonderful to be able to send out a pdf that says
it all, rather than spending a whole morning going back and forth over
these issues again and again.

Thanks in advance,
Janice

discussions with some distributors that for them value is related to use

be viewed.  Clearly the mission of most libraries is not aligned with
that philosophy.  As allowed by 109, we can buy something once and check
it out as many times as patrons want it.  Many distributors feel,
however, that if a video is likely to be viewed many times then we
should pay more for it.  If we were income-producing institutions and
our missions were to create profits then perhaps, but we are not
income-producing (indeed, most of us are dealing with annual budget
cuts) and our missions are to collect, preserve, and provide access etc.
etc. etc...
