View Full Version : The Hire

At one point I had two copies of all 8 short "Hire" films, but we lent them to friends and, eventually, lost track. So, now we have no copies.

Does anyone have them and can copy them for me?
I'll be happy to pay reasonable costs.

TIA,
Barry

Hmmm.. now that you mention it - when they were going to stop the distribution of the DVDs - I had requested one from "Owner's Circle", since my original was also misplaced in similar circumstances. It never showed up!!


Will have to go home and see if the original turns up somewhere - will gladly make you a copy if I find it.

Sorry Barry - I couldn't find the second copy.

Is it possible to burn a copy of your first copy?
If so, I'll be happy to cover the costs of that.

I guess I must apologize for the confusion I have created.

I had a copy - which I thought was misplaced - so I ordered a new one from owner's circle that never came through.

But when I recently moved I remember seeing my original in one of the boxes - but I couldn't find it last night.

Still hunting...

I am located at Centreville area.
One more question: would this copy violates any copyright law?

I am guessing that since BMW distributed them for free and that they are basically a glorified advertisement for them - I doubt they would want to sue for any attempt to further the advertisement :)

I'm no lawyer but I believe it is a copyright enfringment.
It doesn't matter whether it was distributed for free or not.
It goes far beyond fair use.
