    Well atleast if the MPAA has it's way: http://www.bbspot.com/News/2006/11/h...gulations.html

    Absoutley rediculous quotes from the article:

    "Anyone with a home theater would need to pay a $50 registration fee with the MPAA or face fines up to $500,000 per movie shown."

    "Just because you buy a DVD to watch at home doesn't give you the right to invite friends over to watch it too."

    Can't wait to see the MPAA get smacked down by the courts!

    Judging by the links to other stories, I don't think that it is real.

    Just a question Michael, but why post this as though it were real, when it obviously is a send-up?
