Did anyone see the article in this morning's NYT abt showing DVDs of
commercial movies outside on the sides of houses and garage doors and inviting
neighbors and friends over to watch them, ala old-fashioned drive-in movies?
Interestingly enough, the author raised the issue of public performance rights,
but dismissed it by indicating that these are considered "private showings."
That seemed odd to me and I'm wondering if the author is correct?

It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
