Kenneth, where did you buy yours at?
Simply throw the advertisement away! HELLOIt's not a loose insert; it's a sticker that is semi-permanently affixed to the plastic of the center disc holder. I've begun removing it, but so far I'm just making more of a mess. I'll take some adhesive remover to it when I get a chance.
Carl - Did you really think we wouldn't know to just throw it away if such were not the case?
I know, I know...it is on the inside and relatively easy to ignore. My concern is not that I'll get re-offended every time I open up the case. My concern is that advertisements (in general, not just on DVDs) are getting more and more intrusive and offensive. Pretty soon Procter & Gamble is going to start slapping Pampers stickers on newborns' bottoms in hospital nurseries.
But you have to take that I think because as long as I buy all of my DVD'S in widescreen then their's no problemOnce again, let me explain. You don't have the choice of buying all of your dvd's in either widescreen or Pan & Scan. When you popped in your Ice Age dvd, did you see that little menu pop up giving you the option of widescreen or pan & scan? That is because both are located on the same disc. Nobody gave you the option of buying which version you wanted. The studio decided for you. Don't pretend like you buy "all of your dvd's in widescreen". I'd be willing to bet you have quite a number of Pan & Scan discs in your collection given the above senario. And yes, it is a waste of bite rate and has no place on dvd.

Unfortunately, there are only two options.
1. Don't buy the DVD, in which case you miss a great movie.
2. Buy the DVD and write the studio to complain.
If you do the latter will they care? I doubt it.
