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 watch DVDs with VLC. Never saw any of these warnings. I don't know how good or if at all VLC supports Blue-Rays. I don't have a Blue-Ray drive anyway.

Indeed, same here.

But for that you needs to enable, which is not legal under many coutries laws as it break copy protection and remember that VLC DVD player support is considered illegal also because it doesn't respect the DVD standard, in particular the unskippable feature, the best one according to the industry...
