    First off I am not encouraging someone break their agreement, or am I soliciting any links, emails or any other version of anyone might have been that stupid.
    That being said I was just curious as to what the penalty was for those who signed the agreement at the ranch? A monetary fine, lawsuit, jail, banishment from any future dealing with Lucas?
    Inquiring mind wants to know.

    I don't know, but you know what's funny? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Van Ling, producer of the Episode I DVD, one of the founding members of Banned From the Ranch production company thingy?
    Now that's irony...

    You will be surgically altered to look, and sound like Jar Jar Binks.

    A dream date with Ox!
    (No, that's the penalty for an early review of "Stripes")

    To top it off. You have to watch TPM in full frame on a 12" TV set on VHS!

    If I was the impatient arse that spilled the beans early, I would not expect to be invited back to the ranch again!

    I'm pretty sure that Van Ling was one of the founding members of Banned From the Ranch, so it's really funny that he is doing the episode 1 disc.

    Probably banishment from all future Ranch events and denial of screeners for Lucasfilm titles.
    Oh, and from what I hear, TPM is indeed the first of 4 SW movies coming to DVD, but note they don't mention the length of time between?

    George Lucas will name a more annoying character than Jar Jar after you in Episode III. [​IMG]

    Mike, read the posts again - all tongue in cheek! [​IMG]
    However, understanding Lucas's reputed obsession with secrecy and control, etc., I imagine the penalty would be similar to "banned fromthe ranch - cyber style." And with other stuidos - including Fox and its rep Peter Staddon being active on this forum, I suspect other studios would respect the ban as well.
    Most of all though, I feel it would be an embarrassment to this forum and to people like Peter Staddon. We have a duty, I feel, to respect the wishes of George Lucas in a case like this, and hopefully, if anyone does have that info, he or she will recognize their duty to the HT membership in that regard as well.

    By my clock we have 4 hours until everyone is free to post, so I think after a year of waiting we can manage that without trying to scoop everyone with an early post. If it happens, I hope the punishment is noteworthy, as being invited to the ranch for this type of event doesn't happen everyday.
    It's not like we're getting the disc early after all... [​IMG]
