As far as I am concerned, libraries have no business lending these things, much less buying the amounts they do (my mother used to work for the library, they'd literally buy 100s of the top movies)
People wonder why Blockbuster went under. Sure, some of it was movies not costing $100 any more to buy, and competition from Netflix and Red Box. But libraries are a big factor too - why pay anything when you can get the movie for free?
So I guess then you're in favor of getting rid of libraries altogether. After all, why pay for books when you can get them free from the library!
If you think libraries are a factor in Blockbuster going under, do you think they're a factor in Borders going under too?
