[microsound] popcorn

I think movies are a different beast here, you can rent movies you can't
music albums, because the RIAA put an end to that.
Why? a copy of a rented movie isn't a big deal, as must only watch it once,
maybe twice, so no sale there.

so here is another problem:
say I rent a movie, for example, a documentary on Karl Marx's impact on the US labor movement after WWII (had to do that sorry;) and I invite five friends over to watch and enjoy it with me...

q: hasn't the store 'lost' money on my friends watching the movie with me? is that different than filesharing?
