Could we care less? DVD forum have ripped European users so long, that we shouldn’t care… In Europe, you can make these choices: 1) watch your movies with region-free (cheap!) taiwanese player 2) watch your movies with your region-free firmware-hacked PC DVD-drive (as I do) 3) watch your movies as pirated net-copies (with sub-standard pic-quality) 4) wait until “they” release the movie in R2 (takes ages with spoiled pic-quality!). And watch that with your heavily overpriced, but well-marketed Japanese player (Sony?).
