I just looked at this article and realized that I must have read it in the
(Madison) Wisconsin State Journal (which I read in addition to the NYT). But
it does very clearly raise the issue of PPR and that sentence must have been
in the WI version because that's the one I read earlier:

"I INVITED SEVERAL families in our neighborhood and showed "The Muppet
Movie" after sunset. As an experiment, I connected my laptop to the projector and,
through a wireless Internet link, showed a favorite animated short,
"Creature Comforts" that I found on AtomFilms.com (but not at my local Blockbuster).
The Motion Picture Association of America says people must get licenses for
"public" showings of movies, though in most cases they don't need one for home
viewings with friends."

-------------------------------1158073047-- VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. 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.
