Because now many DVD's check for that and a number of them fail in that
I have several (yes we bought the fsckers from a large reputable dealer in
North America) that will not play on my region free player. This started a
year or so ago. It's become a crap shoot. It seems nowadays you need a
player that can be set to pretend to be in the desired region.
Now we are constrained to watching on the PC (there is no sofa, and an 17"
screen is not the same)
Luckily we could download the movie with shareaza, I think this will become
our preferred methof of obtaining movies, if I have to watch it on the PC
anyway. and I guess I will only download sony artists from now, and avoid
their rootkit (my daughter bought an Ipod), If we ever get a DVD burner, we
can make our own region free playable copies.
So RIAA, you are shooting yourselves in the foot by being too greedy.
