Common sense and the American Legal System, mutually exclusive to each other.
Makes you wonder who is really on the MPAA’s payrole?

Ha, yep, I think this ruling is ridiculous. They bought the physical DVD’s, they’re renting them out just like a Blockbuster video store, except you’re just viewing the film (exclusively) online instead of on your own DVD player. How they can try to call that a “public performance” is beyond me…

Netflix streams to their customers over the web to but on a larger scale, wonder why they are not forced to shutdown.

@StormJumper Netflix has licensing for “internet streaming”. Zediva is just playing a physical DVD and showing you the content via the Internet, however they don’t have any internet streaming licensing, which is why the MPAA is trying to shut them down.

Thanks for the info Blu-rayFreak :smiley:
