Hard to figure out how to be polite with this so-to-speak-news? DVD-rips are usable everywhere, while any DL’s from big distributors are limited to one’s cpu (in my case, to extremely equipped 20kg towercase w/ 19" CRT). I don’t drag 45kg’s of HW around, just to please someone in California! So maybe I can’t see their point in this case… Good movies will always sell, regardless of piracy. So they can freely try to protect 90% of Hollywood-productions;) I will still buy GOOD movies as DVD’s, but I’ll always watch those before in mpg/DivX-format. Well-made 700mb DVDrip almost always beats quality of my VHS, and 2*cd DVDrip easily surpasses it. Companies should PROVIDE us things/services, so we could possibly pay about those. If they try to rob us, believing that we don’t remember… Well, I’ve never forgotten such a treatment in a local shop.
