they have all the unskippable bullshit stripped out.
I'm in the UK and whenever we go to the cinema and one of those really annoying FACT warnings appears, she tells me to "sssh!" because she knows I'm about to start a rant. "I've already paid for the fcuking film! Stop bugging me with all this crap!". Murderers get less time time than potentially available for copywrite infringers.
The only people that don't have to watch those bloody annoying warnings that are unskippable at the start of DVDs are the people who have bloody pirated it!
None of my friends seem to notice this, and look at me funny when I have a rant about it. "But Dave, it's to stop pirates...."
This is well known to you lot, I know this, but this really gets up my goat, so apologies for the rant...
Also, it's Bruce Perens. Hi!
Another absurd rule written be people who "just don't understand"...
And, as the article says, it'll remind us never to return to those times again.
