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.

I support the law enforcement community that tries each day to catch crooks.

Fair enough, but think about the steps they're taking. If you're a law-abiding citizen, you pay your money to the recording industry, then before you can watch the DVD you've legally bought, you have to sit through a mandatory lecture on why you shouldn't be a criminal. This is how they treat their paying customers.

Om the other hand, if you're less concerned about legality, you download it at no cost, *and* you don't get the lecture about criminal behavior. Don't you think something's a bit backward here? Why make it harder to be an honest paying customer?
