1509.2 (F) (4) (F) Quality of the Copy Deposited Under the Motion Picture Agreement

1509.2 (F) (4) (F) Quality of the Copy Deposited Under the Motion Picture Agreement


If an applicant has signed the Motion Picture Agreement and submits a deposit copy without requesting the return of that copy, the motion picture is considered a “non- agreement” film and is treated as though there is no Agreement on file.


The standards governing the quality of a non-agreement film are set forth in Sections 1509.2 (F) (1) and 1509.2 (F) (2), and the special “archival quality” standards set forth in the Motion Picture Agreement and Appendix A thereto do not apply. That said, any copy recalled by the Library of Congress under the Agreement must meet all the technical guidelines set forth in Appendix A to the Agreement.
