Frequently Asked Questions

A faculty member wishes to make a DVD copy of a well-worn VHS tape owned by the college library because the original is showing its age. Does this violate copyright?

Likely no. Libraries are granted specific provisions in copyright law to make preservation copies of materials under certain conditions. In many cases, the library will try to purchase an original DVD as a replacement in these cases.
