    Because it isn't cost efficient to stop single peoples bootlegging stuff. One of my friends was contacted by his ISP and lawyers from a major movie publisher (I forget which). They thought he was going to be a hub for many other peoples to illegally download the new movies (Which was just coming out on video). When he explained he had no plans on doing that, and agreed to erase the movie, They told him they would drop the charges because it would of costs them more money to take it to court.

    i have some beta tapes from when vcr first came out that were
    pirated the vhs took over and beta disapperad and piacay upgraded the only reason its illegal now as i said before is because the big company dont like the fact that they dont have control over what we watch or how much they can charge you for it

    I dont think its a crime. Only if you sell it for profit. I mean if its just for your pleasure. I think its ok. Where you can enjoy it at home. But not to give out or sell to others. Than its bad.

    Well, The beta format was better then VCR, better quality and everything. The real reason Beta disappeared is because Sony refused to let any pornographic material on it. Quality control you could say. So the VCR format got spamed with porn.

    Can anybody tell me which format won? What a sad, sad world we live in.

    The tape format is a thing of the past, and Sony has the PSP format now (They did allow pornographic titles on the PSP format, seems like they'll take profits over grace, while learing a lesson too, I guess...).
