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.

Downloading doesn't have to be illegal. I still download the occasional movie but only things that I wouldn't bother renting or going to see in the cinema. I agree that pirating movies that you might otherwise pay to see is wrong.

If I want to see a movie I generally rent it on iTunes now. Same price as the video store and I don't have to get off my butt and waste gas twice to go get it and return it. More convenient than torrents, so it's worth the $5 to me.

Most everything else I get from Netflix, and the big movies I go to the cinema for. Never bought a DVD in my life, and now I'm never going to rent one again either. It's a dead medium.
