It does not violate anti- trust as I hardly think places like
California Newsreel & First Run qualify as monopolies but it is a funny
thought. You can only "enforce" it if you are the SOUL source for the title
in question, in which case you can charge a sliding scale if you choose.
Now in cases in which titles are sold through OTHER companies for home use
there is NOTHING preventing you from buying one and putting in the library
though it may involve a little subterfuge and a personal credit card.
