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" :-).
