Craig W, A copy guard will be in place by the 2005 release of the two competing (Ugh!) formats. Rest assured. My statement you quoted was in answering too your question of; "Flashforward to today, do any of us really think that the studios are gung ho to give us high res copies of their properties?" Today & yesterday & the day before, Studios have released in HiRez. That's all, just a fact. In two different formats, no less! And from those facts, I feel (you may not), that it's absolutely clear, they will do it again.
