Whatever is required for the copyright holder to sell you a new print
should be in-place, or the work should be considered "out of print".
This could include everything from no longer having the negative to no
longer having the capacity to negotiate the sale of new copies.
This would make copyright term for software more rational. Where can
you go to buy a license for PC-DOS 1.0? If you can't license it from the
copyright holder, then there should be no claim that you violated
copyright if you manage to get a copy from other than the copyright
