Keeping up with the competition: Amazon and downloading DVD's

The New York Times today reports that is in talks with Hollywood studios about offering a service whereby customers can download movies and TV shows and burn them onto DVD's. There's no telling what, if anything, this could mean for libraries, but it's worth keeping an eye on these trends as companies develop new ways of delivering information as they could influence patrons' expectations of library services. These trends could also illustrate ways in which librarians could modify their own services.
