Multimedia, AV "Will the two screens be shown back to back? Will each screen last for 10 seconds each? Will each screen be unskippable? Yes, yes, and yes. An ICE spokesman tells me that the two screens will 'come up after the previews, once you hit the main movie/play button on the DVD. At which point the movie rating comes up, followed by the IPR Center screen shot for 10 secs and then the FBI/HSI anti-piracy warning for 10 secs as well. Neither can be skipped/fast forwarded through.'" That'll surely teach the pirates who don't buy DVDs or Blu-rays.

So it comes down to this:

Watch stupid previews/commercials, have meaningless nonsense shoved down your throat and navigate through the maze of menus each time you want to watch the disc,

-OR-

Just download a pirated copy and enjoy it instantly on any device in a completely no-nonsense manner.

The actual payment for the content becomes almost irrelevant! That said, I would definitely be more eager to pay for the Pirated Copy Experience(tm). It feels like premium. The legal way seems like an ad-supported free version.
