Description:

  • Written permission must be obtained in advance from the analog content's original copyright holder(s) prior to the conversion of analog content into a digital format.
  • Written permission must be obtained in advance from the analog content's original copyright holder(s) regarding the dissemination of content after its conversion into a digital format.
