Perhaps so, but the entertainment industry is trying to blame things like DVD ripping and distribution protocols such as Bittorrent for significan losses in revenue, which, for The Avengers, can be seen to not be the case. What other reasons could they possibly have for not liking the ability to backup a DVD and distribution models that will enable competition?

Agree completely. In fact, I'll take it a step further. The current copyright system creates a disincentive in the creative industries; by artificially inflating the value of old ideas it discourages the creation of new ideas (yes, there are still some new and innovative ideas).
