We indeed have to seek from the publisher explicit licence under the Copyright Act to make the copies, preserve them and, the most complex aspect of this, make it publicly accessible.

And this is also so time-consuming for producers of documentaries, who have to get permission for each and every image, sound grab or piece of video they use -- since a documentary is not news reporting. And why feature films have a huge slab in the credits showing every little bit of music heard.

It's simply the way things have to be done currently, and it's a a PITA.
