As the submitter, I'll admit that you may be right. I would also concede that I could have come up with a better title. Yes, if they are in a vault, they probably are "preserved". I'm trying to find out more details about some of the politics of this myself. The lesson for me here may be that Laura Leff is a very good self promoter.

They do know these people (it's in TFA), as these people have worked with CBS before on restoring other Jack Benny artifacts. Also, the IJBFC said that they would pay for the service, not that they would actually perform the service. I imagine that the scenario is that they would be paying CBS's technical people to handle the transfer, though I have not confirmed this.

+ - CBS apparently refuses to preserve Jack Benny show->

goosman (145634) writes "The president of the International Jack Benny Fan Club had the opportunity to review some holdings of the CBS vaults while assisting them with some transfers. In the vaults she found 25 shows on film that were unreleased, but in the public domain. The IJBFC offered to pay for the digitization and preservation of these show, and got a letter from the Benny estate supporting this effort. CBS so far has refused to allow this preservation to happen."
