    Although you have made great strides since the Die Hard and DIVX fiascos, you just took a big step backwards today.
    You have effectively disabled Mac users from viewing special edition content. There is no technical merit to this decision at all. In fact, most of the video content used was in fact created on Macs and distributed by Apple, Inc.
    Yet, now you have decided to verify that a user is in fact using the "Interactual Marketing Machine" before allowing a user to view the content.
    Please immediately cease the "web verify" procedure and enable us to view the content we paid for with the purchase of Star Wars: Episode I
    At least Disney could claim minor incompatibilities, you however cannot.

    Gotta agree with Joseph here. I don't have a DVD-ROM drive for my Mac, but you're giving me precious little incentive to get one.

    As a long time Mac user, I was disappointed when I discovered that I could not access exclusive content on the Phantom Menace DVD.
    And because of Lucasfilm's stringent copyright restrictions, none of the fan sites are allowed to even post pictures of the content that I paid for.
    Please rectify this situation at once so that ALL DVD-ROM owners who purchased Phantom Menace can access all of the content that we paid to see.
