Warner Video Restricting DVD Sales to Libraries

Swiss Army Librarian – “The cataloger at my library found out last week that Warner Home Video has initiated a new policy that puts a serious crimp in the way libraries can buy DVDs – and I’m surprised it hasn’t met the same uproar as HarperCollins’ ebook policy. The change is that Warner Home Video is forcing DVD distributors to: place a 28 day embargo on sales of Warner feature titles to libraries
discontinue providing libraries with DVDs that contain all the bonus features, but instead only sell us the “rental” version that is just the movie.”
