Re: I don't see a problem.
I couldn't agree more!
When I moved to HD Video, I switched from renting DVD to doing backups of HD movies from the internet ("to pirate" is inaccurate because when you digitally copy something, the original is not stolen, it is still there!.. that's why I use "to backup" instead).
Indeed, it was impossible (or at least I didn't want to search for hours) to watch a rented BluRay on my chosen device which runs Linux, and I have absolutely no intention to change my O.S.
I had no trouble renting a movie, but since they made more difficult than watching a backup, they got what they deserve.
