Separate names with a comma.

Guess the topic covers it.
If it's Alliance (New Line), Paramount, or Universal assume that it will have the bilingual cover.
It's New Line, but according to DVD Boxoffice, it doesn't have a french track (of course, that may not be accurate). From what I understand, bilingual covers only applies if the DVD has a french track.
When did this stupid practice begin for Canadian releases?
not soon enough! it should have been like that
since the beginning
I can pretty much GUARANTEE it will have bilingual.
Wouldn't be surprised if it's delayed like every other recent release done by Alliance.
I have sent an email to Alliance/Atlantis about their DVD's explaining that I will not buy any with bilingual covers, I guess this is another to add to the list that I will be getting from the US.
"not soon enough! it should have been like that since the beginning"
ah, no it shouldn't have been and that's exactly why it originally wasn't done that way. You're one of the VERY few people who actually prefer this. Like Anders said, a reversible cover or separate releases would be MUCH preferable to adding material to the cover art that wasn't intended to be there. Distributers take the time producing separate releases to people who, for some unknown reason, like pan and scan versions of films, so why not simply make different cover art?
Does anyone know what prompted this practice in the beginning?
From the sources I have, it's NOT LAW to do this, more of a guideline, but apparently it WILL become law if the studios don't comply with what's outlined in the guideline.
BOYCOTT BILINGUAL packaging
Support dual releases
Quebec government? I thought they favored separatism? Strange they don't demand special releases for their constituents.
I'm with the majority - boycott begun.
