maybe they need some divx? or is that illegal too :wink:

but anywayz this sucks big time… but another question do these US dvd’s have dutch subtiltes? i never ordered one from amazon orso…

They say the “French Parliement”…

BUT did they ask anything to the consumer ? US ?

Nope, they call that democracy.

I prefer Anarchy then.

Enjoy. Fixx.

Viva la’ resistance!!!

resistance is futile we are the borg hehehhee

I see the beggining of a new black market in France…

I’m French, and it’s a real shit this law! I do want to see films and our gov does not he do. You’re rght, it’s not democracy, it’s Money that rules the world.

Hi guys,
I’m french and would like to specify that we still can import DVD’s thanks to the EU. We can’t by Region 1 DVD’s anymore in online shops or virgin megastore but still in other EU countries like Luxembourg.
I have the luck to work there so this law is totally pointless ! I still have the right to buy it and bring it with me in France.

Just one thing to finish, we say “Vive la resistance !” and not “Viva” :-).

French RULEZ !!

If you don’t know, it’s a french man that did divx;-)

(btw i’m french )

FUCK (almost)ALL FRENCH, okay your Vin and pommes frites are good. and BELGIAN FRIES ARE DISGUSTING! FUCK YOU MR “The Poster” Belgians are only good to throw cow shit at. Belgian fries are waaaaay to fat and they are baked in old fat. Belgians suck ass. En ik weet daar nog wel wat leuke moppen over.
