Hollywood is inferior

CNET: Movie studios tout first DVD bust in U.S.

"Pirates seek to profit off the enormous popularity of DVDs by using the latest in technology to illegally manufacture DVD copies of Hollywood films, and again dupe consumers into purchasing a wholly inferior product," MPAA Chief Executive Jack Valenti said in a statement. "We are grateful to the NYPD for their outstanding police work."

Inferior product? Um, sorry Jack but a copy of a DVD is an exact copy, bit for bit... it's exactly the same as the studio version. So if anyone's making the inferior product, it's the studios trying to sell crappy movies at more than $20 a pop.
