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.

That's it! This has pushed me over the edge. I've never pirated a movie, but I'm going to start now!

I've hated those damn FBI warnings for years. I remember before Blu-ray came out, there was mention that new discs would allow people to start movies immediately - meaning no bullshit non-skippable stuff. What the hell happened? Now they're moving in the wrong direction!

As a Canadian, I don't want to be forced to watch stupid FBI, American Homeland Security, flying eagle American patriotic bullshit warnings. Since when did the FBI have jurisdiction over Canadians?? Why should I give a flying f*** over American federal laws? American laws apply only to Americans. Why don't American agencies understand that?
