Didn't know where to put this one...but something I was pondering. One of the problems I have with out of print releases, is that if something happens to the original disc(chewed by dog, soda spill, DVD rot), you arn't allowed to make a backup...so, an idea.. Why can't studios offer downloadable DVD's? Is it possible for them to encrypt the DVD so once you download it into a folder, you can't move it, be it a hard drive, or a sub folder of the original, or a DVD Drive? It would also somehow be programable so it can't be recognized by file sharing services. Should sometihng happen to the hard drive, you could be allowed to download one backup copy every 5 years, at a reduced price to prvent abuse of the system.. Couldsomething like this work?
