But at least they will not

Have their product Pirated will they.

Of course they also will not get the exposure that they wanted either but you can't have everything can you?

Perhaps someone should mention an old peer here GoD who is more than capable of making copies with the Region Codes removed so perhaps they should contact him for this service so that they can get the promotion that they crave. :)

lost out on being in the running for awards to sell the movie better...

it actually presents an excellent arguement against regional encoding now doesn't it?

GoD could cure all their ills.

Quite easily and where would they all be without region codes? :)

That would mean that I could buy my favorite DVDs in the US long before they are available in AU an see them when I want. At least the law here allows the owner of media to make copies for their own personal use so I use a Crack and remove the region codes from all the DVDs that I buy in the US and view them a long time before they hit the shelves here.

But being typical bureaucrats they wouldn't think of doing something like that for their own promotional requirements would they?

"It's been quite a ****-up,"

by jdclyde In reply to The Pitfalls of DRM....

I agree with the man quoted in the article. And I also feel it has been "cocked-up" for a long time.

Anyone else remember when CD's came out in the 80's and the told us that "the price would come down when the technology became mainstream".


It costs almost double to buy something on CD than it does on "tape", yet the cost to MAKE that CD is almost NOTHING compared to the cost to make the tape.
