There is no excuse for downloading or copying DVDs illegally. It’s wrong and could land you in jail. But, as is illustrated in this BSPCN post, studios could learn a thing or two from their swashbuckling, peg-legged counterparts in terms of streamlining.
Pop in a DVD and you’ll have to suffer through previous, unskippable animated menus, FBI warnings and who knows what else before you get to the actual film. With a less than legal DVD, you just pop it in and watch the movie. Or so I’m told.
Consumerists, how do you and “your friends” go about watching movies, and does the unease-of-use thing with DVDs drive “friends” to piracy?
