This was posted to the Library Directors list but in case some are on vacation I am posting to everyone. Please coordinate so there is one response per library.
As most of you know I have been working with Oregon public libraries to see if we are at a level where we can get a group discount on a license from Movie Licensing USA (MLU). This requires a minimum of 100 library locations.
The letter below outlines the offer from MLU. If your library did not respond to the recent survey and you think you might be interested please contact me before the deadline of September 15. If you are not sure if your library responded, contact me and I can let you know. Any questions, please let me know.

I have been speaking with a lot of libraries in Oregon and have found that many are interested in a copyright compliance license. By purchasing as a group we are able to offer them special pricing on the license.
Once your state has obtained a license through Movie Licensing USA they will be able to show 95% of the major motion picture studios. Once your library has the license you can show any DVD or VHS tape that is in your library, home, or local video store as long as our license covers it. Want to know if something is covered? Check out our movie search tool on our website www.movlic.com <http://www.movlic.com/> . Your library can search by title, actor, or genre. If the film comes up you are free to show it. You can show an unlimited amount of films, for any aspect of programming inside the libraries. Once your state has obtained the license you will get a customer I.D. # that will allow your libraries to access over 300 movie posters that you can customize to your show date and time. If you can't find a title that you are looking for we offer a youth and adult generic poster for you to use. Movie Licensing USA offers Disney Fun and Games Activity Sheets for the children librarians to use.
The Federal Copyright Act (Title 17, United States Code, Public Law 94-553, 90 Stat. 2541) governs how copyrighted materials, such as movies, may be utilized publicly. Neither the rental nor the purchase or lending of a video cassette or DVD carries with it the right to exhibit the movie publicly outside the home, unless the site where the video is used is properly licensed for copyright compliant exhibition. Movie Licensing USA provides this Public Performance Site License to Libraries across the nation so that these entertainment movies can be shown legally in their library buildings.
Movie Licensing USA is the only company able to offer you public performance site licensing for all of these Hollywood Studios:
* Walt Disney Studios
* DreamWorks Pictures
* Warner Bros.
* Touchstone Pictures
* Hollywood Pictures

* United Artists
* Paramount Pictures
* Sony Pictures
* Universal Pictures
* Columbia Pictures
* TriStar Pictures
* New Line
* United Artists
* Fine Line

* Lions Gate Films
No other licensing source can provide this exclusive, comprehensive coverage.
We can only offer this special pricing if at least 100 libraries purchase, if more than that want to purchase it will only make the price go down. All of the licenses purchased through you will be below our base price of $295. This offer is only good through September 15.
Look forward to hearing from you!
