    Back when I was a boy, that kind of behavior was known as “Indian Giving”. That’s not politically sensitive, but there it is.

    It’s also known in the common tongue as “stealing”. Imagine if the local grocery store sold you a candy bar, and then, just as you were about to unwrap it and take a bite, someone from the store snatches that candy bar out of your hands and says “This candy bar is no longer available. Here is a gift certificate. You can’t actually buy anything with it, but if you present it, we’ll let you borrow a serving spoon for a couple of days.”

    This is exactly why I have an extensive DVD collection. Well, that and my inability to stream.

    This is why I still buy compact discs, amongst many reasons.

    And they wonder why people go to pirate sites.
