How is it that they can get away with selling these and not pirated copies of, say, Boogie Nights?
In the case of Boogie Nights, Warner has a lot of money and lawyers to scare off and stop bootleggers. The rights holders in the cases of the Hitchcock films, however, are likely much less well-off than Warner.
There's a German DVD from Kinowelt/Arthaus available which reportedly is very good. It has both the sound and silent version of Blackmail and as an extra a screentest of Anny Ondra with Hitchcock. Of course this is R2 and PAL but seeing that you are from Norway that shouldn't be a problem.
