How many items do you have in your public library that violate copyright violations? Cleveland Public Library will have 800 or so less after this weekend. Seems their Chinese language DVDs caused a ruckus to someone because they <a href="http://www.cleveland.com/plaindealer/stories/index.ssf?/base/cuyahoga/1212223071195010.xml&coll=2"> yanked them all from the shelves.</a> I am forever telling librarians we cannot purchase the Rosetta Stone language CDROM - we need to get the network version. And then I hear - but other libraries have it.... Then there is the whole music CD lending - technically I think that is a copyright violation. But are we going to quit lending CD Music?
