    Seriously, if you want Snappers gone, you need to collect PAPER signatures. Create a standard form letter for people to snail-mail to Warner. However, as Warner once said to me "Does the snapper keep you from buying the disc?" The answer is usually no [​IMG]

    Wasting your time. Warner owns the patent to Snappers. They don't own the patents to other keepcase designs, and they would have to pay royalties to make the cases, or would have to buy them from a 3rd party. Which one do you think is going to appeal most to the bottom line? The snapper is here to stay for Warner.

    Done.
    The way I see it, every little bit helps. Besides, logic would seem to conclude that Warner also owns the rights/patents (or whatever) to snappers in Australia and in Europe, yet they ceased their use despite whatever perceived 'impact' on the bottom there may be.

    And, Warner has never used snappers in Japan.

    Won't do much good but I agree every little bit helps. I signed it.

    Warner is releasing their movies in keep cases...in Finland and only for rental. This pisses me off royally.

    Save your time guys...its no use.There are lots of petitions raised before to get WARNER attention,but all of them failed...at least WARNER AUSTRALIA shows a little bit of interest to the consumers!
