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 can¹t 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
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

>>> § Sony Pictures
>>> § Universal Pictures
>>> § Columbia Pictures
>>> § TriStar Pictures
>>> § New Line
>>> § United Artists
>>> § Fine Line

No other licensing source can provide this exclusive, comprehensive
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!
