I suppose I was being overly tight in this, Jean.  If I give
or loan an item to one person, then I haven't distributed it.
If I give it to 2 or more, I have.  I don't know who Rob Repp
is - I was just going by the definition of distribution.

>From the Random House College Dictionary:
distribution, n.  ... 8) the delivery or giving out of an item 
or items to the intended recipients, as mail, newspapers, etc.
... 10) the marketing, transporting, merchandising, and selling
of any item.

>From this definition, if I give something to a group of people,
I have "distributed" it.  This definition would seem to apply 
to anything uploaded onto the 'Net.
