Hi...

Not that I always agree with aspects of it but laws like that are designed to prevent theft, which I totally understand. The folks who make and act in these movies deserve to be compensated.

Regards...

Which does not answer the questions I asked, but raises one more...

How do I play it using VLC ?
So how were they not compensated?

And if you are going to flatly state that what someone is doing is illegal, at least quote for us the specific law they are breaking and explain how in your own legalistic interpretation, it applies to this person.

I have many movies that included a digital copy with the purchase, I think that's cool.

Going sligtly off topic here (again) but lead me to sarch "open source movies":
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_film
https://soosck.wordpress.com/2010/11...stribute-free/

tho if you ask me do we support libraries or not and should "artists" (e.g: programmers &c) be able to make one or two things then remain fat for the rest of their days, looking at their gold plated shark tanks?

Add: while 2\3rds of the planet maybe out of "luck!?"

I do not want to start WW 3.

This discussion is most interesting.

1. For those who buy DVDs, it is not unreasonable to want to continue to be able to play those movies which they paid for.

2. And those who produce those movies deserve to be compensated for their work.

There is no win-win in this situation.

But eventually most movies end up in the $5 bin at Walmart. :-)

And I have many of those in my collection.

Talking

At least movies are not as bad as somethings, I got an xbox from a thrift store it had everything including some games. Luckily it was cheep and I was thinking I can put Linux on this, because none of the games work without an internet connection and they won't let it connect because it is "outdated!" (Mod chips away... )
