That's really too bad. As much as I have been advocating the whole "something is better than nothing" approach, it really does pain me to hear of cuts like this being made. It definitely all is about money, unfortunately. Ugh.

At any rate, the fans are getting cut-rate versions of the originals and have to pay for the privelige. Well, I'm not, but I know the die-hards will...


You said it! How can a company decide that no profit is better than a little? And would it really be so difficult to be charitable and take a lesser cut?

A small percentage of something is better than a percentage of nothing.

The music people make no money.

Paramount has to put out an inferior product, risking low sales.

Die hard fans have to settle for a second-rate product or go without.

Nobody wins.

Too bad the industry couldn't have worked out some standard agreement in regard to all DVDs. Some across-the-board cut of sales. Instead, everyone is out for the most moola, and the consumer has to constantly worry about getting the 'actual' TV show versus some chopped up, fake version. And we have to live in a climate of mistrust and hard feelings.

what I don't understand is how all of these huge, multi-million-dollar MEGA-entertainment companies, like Paramount, Sony, Fox, Universal, et al, are getting "pushed around" by individual rights-holders to a few songs...

you'd think they'd all get together and just say, "sorry, but none of your music will ever get used in any movie or tv show EVER again"
