Suppliers to schools and colleges sometimes include public performance clearance for educational purposes as opposed to pricing for home use. Don't know if that is the case with these particular instances.

This is sometimes true for new releases. On the other hand, go to the "Hot New Releases" section at Amazon and check out the VHS prices: $25 for Harry Potter, $15 for Bridget Jones, $23 for Ocean's Eleven... not a single one lists at over $25 (except for the multi-tape box sets). Those $100-plus VHS prices are an anomaly, I think. I'd be interested to know why those pricing anomalies exist -- look up Moulin Rouge and you'll find you can buy it on VHS for $110 or $13, and there's no apparent difference between the two versions. Anybody know why this is?
