I really hate it when I put a DVD into my DVD player, and before I can actually get to the fucking movie I paid to watch, I have to sit through a big bunch of stupid, time-consuming, not-the-movie bullshit.
I can skip those stupid trailers for movies that will be out of date in six months easily enough, but I can't get past that insulting and annoying series of anti-piracy warnings they make me watch on every. single. dvd. I. watch. Okay, guys. I get it. In fact, I got it about forty thousand fucking DVDs ago.
To illustrate how stupid this is: can you imagine having to listen to some stupid lecture on not stealing music every single time you tried to start up a CD? How about a "the more you know" style admonishment at the beginning of every television show? Do these idiots actually think that if they take this warning off the DVD, piracy will suddenly explode? Do they actually think that someone, seconds before they hit the big red "PIRATE" button in their secret underground lab, will see that warning and have a sudden change of heart?
Apparently, I'm not the only person who is fed up with the RIAA and MPAA treating its customers like we're criminals. Check out this brilliant "anti-piracy" poster:
