No, not an appeal to authority. I simply pointed you to an article showing that at least one engine manufacturer doesn't see the point of investing BILLIONS in F1 if the engines they're required to develop are based on normally-aspirated, relatively large V8s that are no longer in line with the direction of the auto industry. They want to be developing engine technology that has a return on investment and that is applicable to their core business - you know, road cars?

Note that you do NOT purchase the movie on the disk, you purchase the physical media and a license to view the disk in any manner the studio decides as terms of the license.

The first few support my stance, and the last two do not seem to, however I think they're wrong in that renting out a movie does not constitute 'disposal' of the DVD. BTW IANAL, YMMV.
