Who needs a digital copy of a movie you have on disc anyway?
People besides you? Millions upon millions of people who like portable video on their iPods?

Re: Dear Movie Studios, Marketers and DVD Manufacturers;

They're doing this to address an issue with DRM - namely format shifting. The digital copy on, for example, Hancock is playable on a PSP.

I've already paid for an expensive Blu-Ray and so, legally, the only way I can play it on my PSP as well is if I buy the film on UMD as well. The digital copy Sony put on the second disc (which is a DVD, rather than a Blu-Ray) saves me that cost.

As far as I am concerned it is a welcome additional feature.

But are you willing to pay an additional $4 for it?

I'm not. But I want special features.

So I'm fucked.

T'Baio, you and I have had our disagreements at times, but in this, you are absolutely 100% correct. I could not possibly agree with you more.

*cheers*

In my case, the discs I have with digital copy on them are Blu-Rays. They haven't cost me any more than they would without it.
