    For me it's more about access: I live in the boonies (the tope three grossing family films are usually what I can choose from locally) and am a bit limited in my mobility, due to health reasons

    I didn't ignore that at all, actually. I pointed out that the same level of piracy and trading can take place within a day with one single digital copy at it's root. All the while never loosing absolutely any quality, nor requiring personal contact.



    Hell, I am probably on torrent trackers that distribute that amount of data every few days

    Remember Romero's Night of the Living Dead? Because of the contract he signed it's now in the public domain, we've now got so many cuts and edits to the film that it is worse than having a conversation about which version and restoration of Blade Runner you liked best.

    AMC is really smart with that.
    It's available for purchase the day after a new episode airs.
    $2.99 on amazon.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I fail to see how that makes it worse.

    I always heard they forgot to use a copyright label at the end?

    It's like a song remix where hardly anyone can find the damned original.

    The original isn't hard to find.
    That isn't a good reason, imo.

    No, you're right. I was wrong. I remembered this incorrectly. Thank you for making me double check.

    Night of the Living Dead Blu-ray Releases - Blu-ray Forum

    It's good enough reason to me.
