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.

ok, i've had a crappy day so I'll bite. Pls remember, nothing personal.

Who the hell are the media industry to decide what is wrong or right? This is the same industry that actually pirates its own members profits. How many times has the RIAA been sued for not giving artists the money they had coming? This is the same industry that lobbied Congress to get copyright extended to such a point that its ridiculous. Copyright is suppose to have a short shelf life. This is the same industry that layers encryption and other copy control mechanisms onto their media to prevent normal fair use practices, depriving you of property you paid for. This is the same industry that blatantly makes up numbers to incite fear about a loss that while real, probably can't ever be quantified.

What the **AA is doing is wrong. But I don't see you chastising them for it. Its only the pirates that get targeted. Also, do try to remember that copyright infringement is suppose to be a civil matter. Not a matter of national security. How many resources is Homeland Security putting into copyright enforcement that should be going to things like stopping terrorism?
