Actually, I wondered about this when I saw a news item this winter in Video
Librarian - I think it was the online newsbriefs - that some company - I
want to say Acorn, but someone who does A&E type series - was releasing some
titles in DVD only. (this sounds so delightfully vague!)

Also, thank you to all who answered my question on ownership labeling for
DVDs. The general decision was - not to. Not my opinion, but someone kept
forcefully stating that "dvd's cost less than books, why are we doing
something for the 2% of the people who will steal. Ownership labels are
just another 1-2 steps for something that may not even cost $15." Grrrrr.
