Yes, that is why the studios stopped Real DVD. They want you to first see the movie in a theater $10/person, then buy the DVD $20.99, the Blu Ray $27.99 and the iPod or amazon download $19.99. Total $80 per movie???? Four version of the same movie not bad repeat business.

I will only buy Blu Ray when they are below $20, I sure hope that Real DVD wins that legal battle. Kaleidescape made it, so it should be a lot easier for the others.

Yes, I know I could download software from the net and not even bother but I am a law obeying citizen and respect that it cost money to make movies. On the other hand I don't want to be taken for a fool!!
