All true (though there is no mention of streaming in the law and one rarely can 
purchase a stream outright, so I'm not sure it would really qualify as an 
unused copy in the same way a tangible item would. Also, it is considered a 
"replacement" copy in the language of the law. A "preservation" copy is one 
made from a unique item, which is dealt with in a different part of 108). 
Please use the Section 108 Spinner. It can help you understand all the criteria 
for this and other exceptions under 108.

Hi Christine
My understanding of USCode Section 108 is that if your titles are deteriorating 
and unavailable for purchase or streaming in new condition, you can simply make 
preservation copies.  You don't need to seek permission.  There are caveats 
(in-library use only, etc.), but you can do it.
