Re: Liblicense Guide to Licensing Agreements

I am responsible for provincial licensing of media programs (video,
multimedia, etc)  and instructional computer software programs through an
agency called Advanced Education Media Acquisitions Centre (AEMAC). 

Will you be addressing media and multi-media issues as well?  It seems
that all the work to date on this list relates to database-type licenses
and not media. Am I correct?
