ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to license niche and older digital video-disc (DVD) titles for production and distribution through HP's year-old DVD manufactured-on-demand (MOD) service. The MOD service enables Sony to offer a wider choice of catalog titles to consumers because HP can press and ship single discs as they are ordered. According to Sony president David Bishop, the firm has not released some of the content because of the cost of maintaining inventory and the difficulties of gauging demand.
