Re: The usual anti-authority, pro-piracy bias Except you miss the point, it's not the studio's property, ITS MINE. I bought the movie, and should be free to do with it as I please. According to your logic, the company is well within its right to say I can only watch my blu ray movie on one player, ever. I cannot walk to another blu ray player in my house and watch it.
You also use the wrong potato analogy. Does the supermarket or farmer tell me what to do with said bag of potatoes after I buy it? No! If I want to make mash potatoes, I can, if I want to shoot a potato out of my potato gun, I can. I bought the potatoes, I am free to do with it what I please.
You and your elk also forget, I didn't buy a blu ray at $30.00 a pop, I bought the movie. The fact it's on a blu ray disc is irrelevant. I bought 24 potatoes, the fact it is in a bag is irrelevant. You paid for the potatoes, like you paid for the specific movie title. The transport mechanism for it is irrelevant.
Studios only offer a SD digital copy, even though I bought an HD copy! Some studio's only allow you to download a digital copy until a certain date. I just bought a brand new blu ray, and that date is well past.
Stop drinking the Kool-Aid and open your bloody eyes.
