First and foremost, I do not condone bootlegs of any kind, nor do I own any. This is simply something that I feel needs brought to atention, especially after the previous Warner chat. While searching eBay's DVD section (something I do frequently when the call volume at work dies down and I am bored) I noticed something that struck my attention. There are a few people selling obvious "made by fans for fans" bootleg DVD-R season sets of Batman: The Animated Series on eBay, and they are making a lot of money doing it. What strikes me is that despite their obvious bootleg nature, bids are skyrocketing because fans of the series who know they are bootlegs bid anyways because they want the series on disc. They go for $100-150, with many, many bids. This isn't really a Star Wars situation, with a powerful filmmaker holding out until he can gets things just as he wants them. This is simply a case of a studio seemingly unaware of a large chunk of profit just waiting for them to take. I know Warners have the Batman series under their "family" division, but this series heyday happened while we were all still kids and adoloescents, and as adults we want box sets. I'm sure the newer generation of kids will love their themed discs, but honestly the core audience of this series are now box set seeking college students and adults, and the cash these "for fans by fans" bootleggers are pulling in is proof of that.
