    I'm not sure where to post this so I guess I'll start here. I do film reviews mostly, but I also have a side job tracking down whether or not stuff is available for sale/rent in any format. For a lot of stuff on Blu-ray I find on Amazon and other sites the film studio has the dvd rights, but the blu-ray is listed as being distributed by Ais. I can't find any information on them so I'm curious if anyone here knows who they are and if they're legitimate.

    Perchance do they have a website or something then? I need to find their info if I can. I'm assuming Ais is an acronym?

    I've always assumed it was an acronym used by Amazon for import titles shipped in-house (Amazon UK/France/Germany/Italy/Spain/USA/Canada and so on). These titles aren't relegated to UK only but other countries as well as far as I can tell but then I haven't dug that deep into this matter either.
