Re: [ARSCLIST] Curatorial Responsibility, formerly Copyright of treasures
If they are donated to or otherwise obtained by an institution and the
institution makes preservation copies, it is usual for that institution to
allow a sevice copy to be auditioned by qualified visitors, usually defined
as scholars. Some are more lax about this definition than others.
Allowing copies to circulate, however, even if returned, opens issues of
liability to the institution, especially if they turn up on a CD issued in,
Institutions accepting gifts have curitorial responsibilty, a topic yet to
be fully explored.

What an amazing list! and, what a potential legal problem it would be to
issue those...and how sad it is that copies may never be offered for
sale to the public.
Thanks for sharing the information.
