enough for them to register and pay online with instant delivery of the services, Iguess the same goes for music and movies as otherwise the itunes store would notbe there ;)We actually wrote something very simular to the itunes store. way before they(apple inc) did (1998-1999) which now is atwww.huge.nl, it's dysfunctional becauseits ugly and the payment processors aren't linked anymore, but something like thatcould well become a central spill in the distribution of movies and music (or maybewe can keep the itunes store around once they learn to make it possible for ANYONEto sell their products there, not just their RIAA friends ;)Now, primary problem I see with movie sites is that they don't have a license (theones that actually distribute the content that is).This is due to the berne convention, which was pushed by the recording and printingindustry of it's days (1933).GEMA, BUMA, STEMRA, etc are all in existance today because back in 1933 it was apretty good idea to have the "rights' managed by an organisation -per country-(after all, back in 1933 you still had several fairly small markets, its not like you had5 billion books printed in korea and then shipped to your customers, there was nointernet, satellite tv wasn't invented yet, etc)The result of this is that disney could not give a license to a movie site to put disneymovies in full hd/3d for a global audience (worldwide distribution) if they wanted to(which, they btw, do not, otherwise they would not be trying to sue US for routingthe piratebay all the time ;)But then again, they have been part of the 'usual suspects' that kept lobbying forsuch regulations that now (also) get in their own way, deratifying treaties isn't quiteso easy as creating them ;)This is also a reason why southpark, for example, doesn't make their episodesavailable on one central worldwide site anymore, but rather has sites per countrynow, eventhough it's their -own- created content.(southpark studios also just includes the advertisements themselves and makes theirstreams high quality, as opposed to third party streaming sites which usually arecaptured from tv airings)I'm quite sure you'll still earn your investment back on the DVDs as a lot of people(still) buy those, and TV stations are (still) around and still get paid to put'something" between advertisements (which in the end makes the cash, also online,in most cases, except for direct sales).Now as far as I understand, these movie sites, get paid by their advertisers,depending on how popular their site is in the "alexa ratings". Why don't you just setup your own movie site, together with some colleguas, that does exactly the same,watch the movie in low-res streaming with advertisements for free, or download it infull-hd and pay for it, I bet a lot of those movie link sites like the one you werecomplaining about would simply link to your site and therefore also generateadvertisement income for you.I cannot interfere in what my customers do, If some guy just buys your DVD and
