Hello everyone Today i am having a rant and rave. Its about the stupid and annoying adverts at the begining of dvds. The ones you cant skip. Like that one that goes you wouldn't steal a car, etc dont pirate. All these ads were on a dvd i BROUGHT of lord of war, aka spending money for content. There was the pirate video ad (if someone is going to pirate video, then they wont be watching the dvd with the advert on will they?), and advert for mars WHICH COULDNT BE SKIPPED", about 5 adverts for other films, and then an advert for amnesty international. Now, i paid money to see a film, and what i got, were just loads and loads of adverts, followed by a dissapointing film. Honestly, it makes me want to download the film... wait a second...

Do you now understand why I never buy DVDs? Exactly for that reason. What is the point of spending money and then get unskippable content nobody gives a dang about. If you really want to have fun come to Holland here you can download whatever you want. I've downloaded content totalling 1 million dollars at least in my short internet live and I've never been arrested simply because downloading music and movies is legal, warez is not but nobody, even the police not, gives a dang.

When downlpading movies and music it is not illegal if your just watching and listening to it and it is for personal use. But, if your taking it and putting it on cds and dvds and selling it ,that is when it becomes illegal. Why? It is because the money should be going to the artists and makers. Hope that clears it up ?

I know dear. ;-) I know more about legal issues pertaining copyright than the average internet user after I nearly had people or 100 sue me for copyright infringement. :D

I have to agree with you on this, the adverts that can't be skipped are very annoying. I can see why they feel the need to include copyright warnings and such but I highly doubt it deters anyone who does intend to pirate a DVD. Any other adverts that such as the Mars one you mention are just a complete joke, anything that is not film related or trailers should definitely not be on DVDs. I do hope this is not a growing trend

Yes, i mean mars had nothing to do with the film, it couldnt be skipped, and it went on forever!

I usually don't mind them too much, it is part of the experience I guess. I like watching the previews. Nowadays when you go to the movies the movies come with commercials before them also. It is something that is mildly annoying.

Yes, just skipped forward and get rid of them. There are an evil necessity because of marketing. It is parcel of modern life. Just ignore these pesky things. Enjoy the main movie.
