Did MPLC go out of business?

Ok my turn to ask a question. I noticed at the ALA that Motion Picture
Licensing Corp which had more or less "pioneered" the umbrella licenses for
video in libraries was not there BUT a new company called MOVIE licensing
was . The Movie Licensing company is a division of SWANK and appeared to
have MOST of the major studios but not a lot of the small educational and
other smaller companies that MPLC use to have. Anyone out there know if
MPLC is still around?

Just curious but it pretty much goes into my belief that Swank tries to
dominate all US film showings.
