Started for the hopes, dreams, info, & details, of Criterion Collection on HD disc. From the CC web site: "Over the years, Criterion has had a series of license agreements with almost every major Hollywood studio, be they for laserdisc or DVD releases. Some licenses are renewable, some aren't. We do our best to keep the whole catalog together and growing, but we do occasionally lose rights, and in those cases we are forced to take certain titles out of print. These days we approach studio titles on a case-by-case basis, hoping to make the studios see the value of our work, and we are sometimes successful. While we would like nothing better than to release our entire laserdisc catalog on DVD, we are unable to do so due to rights issues. DVD and laserdisc rights are often discrete entities and ownership of one does not necessarily imply ownership of the other."
