A world without regional coding, game and audio protections, lowpriced music,audio n dvds would be ideal yes ...
.. but i dont think that the recording and film industries share the same ideals
But seriously now, regional coding has never been a problem for me. I very rarely get my hands on a region 1 coded dvd (other regions are out of the question - who knows chinese anyway? ), and when i do there's the "5 times region changing" and others options available..
For someone that travels a lot to different continents and is a dvd freak, i can understand the trouble - but believe me the film recording industry has no sympathy for them
The funny think is that they do not even take under consideration the fact that regional coding can potentially be rendered useless by many techniques, buying a 2nd dvd player being one of them (at least for watching 2 dvd regions).
