What is a "Public Performance"?
How many times have you seen the FBI warning at the beginning of a DVD Movie? Next time you pop a DVD into the Player, read it closely. It states that the movie is for" Home Use only". Home Use means just that: viewing of a movie at home by family or a close circle of friends.
