Angry BluRay DVD with digital copy - WARNING

Just something I found out today...

Ya know those BluRay DVDs you buy that advertises a digital copy of the movie that you can copy to iTunes or winbloz media player?

Before you buy it, make sure the damned redemption code hasn't already expired...

For example... Am on the road traveling for work, and I stopped at a Fry's Electronics. Browsing through the BluRay movies, I see "Taken" that includes a digital copy. Awesome! I can watch it tonight in my hotel, and have the bluray for my home DVD collection.

Uhhhh, no... According to Fox's digital copy site, it expires within a year of it being released, REGARDLESS of when it's purchased, and that it says so on the package...

Did I loose any money over it? No. Does it piss me off that the only place stated on the package to be seen was on the back in letters that would make a gnat squint? FUCK YES...

Moral of the story; if you buy a movie with the hopes of being able to watch the digital copy through iTunes or winloz media player, better bring a magnifying glass to the store with ya to check for expiration dates...

And the media companies wonder why there's so much pirating of movies?

My grandad had a saying about free lunches. They don't tend to taste good, but if you're starving you take what you can get.

My grandpa had a similar saying. He'd always say: "Go get me a beer before your grandma gets back from the store."
