All I Want for Christmas is...

...RealDVD. Unfortunately, nobody can get it for me because the big Hollywood studios are taking legal action to keep it off the market. The program would allow me to legally save my DVDs  on my personal computer, which would make my life so much easier - and luckily it has all sorts of built in protections to prevent users from distributing pirated movies. Unfortunately, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has decided that this safe an useful gift must NEVER be found under our Christmas trees, and MPAA Chairman Dan Glickman has decided to play the Grinch.

For some unknown reason, the big movie studios and the MPAA grinches are doing their best to separate me from my preferred Christmas gift, and that makes me mad...because they aren't doing a gosh-darn thing to try to get rid of the plethora currently available (and free) programs that make REAL piracy possible. There's going to be a court hearing on RealDVD in early 2009, so I might be able to get my hands on it then...and maybe I'll write an angry letter to Santa asking for an advance copy.
