    Maybe their on to something ? If I bought it can I send to my mom in Ontario or my brother fighting in Iraq ? Hmm I like that . Probably not tho , but if I was allowed one Download that would be nice if I could share it or send to a friend ?

    Wait a minute it would never work , what with DRM but what about fair use ? Seems like a good Idea if you bought the DVD and could send an email addy for the D/L ?

    They have to stay legit. After all, in the U.S. you can't make a digital copy of the physical DVD even though you own it. But seriously, though...I wouldn't either.
