Rose M. Welch was the first of a few of you to send in the news that librarians have realized that Netflix is a great way to expand the catalog of DVDs that can be loaned out, even though it violates Netflix's terms of service. Netflix seems a bit ambivalent about the whole thing, saying that they don't like it, and they would expect librarians would obey the terms of service (which this does not), but that they really don't want to sue libraries -- perhaps recognizing how awful that would look from a PR standpoint. While I applaud Netflix not going straight to the lawyers, is it really that big of a deal that libraries are using Netflix in this manner?
