As If There Needed To Be More Reason To Pirate Movies
Will the two screens be shown back to back? Will each screen last for 10 seconds each? Will each screen be unskippable? Yes, yes, and yes.
An ICE spokesman tells me that the two screens will “come up after the previews, once you hit the main movie/play button on the DVD. At which point the movie rating comes up, followed by the IPR Center screen shot for 10 secs and then the FBI/HSI anti-piracy warning for 10 secs as well. Neither can be skipped/fast forwarded through.”
So the way to combat piracy is to punish those that have bought the physical disc by making them sit through more warnings that don’t apply to them?
Makes total sense.
