IANAL, but isn't it deceptive advertising if they first sell the "HD-DVD" and tell you later that "by the way, we own your box if ever want to actually view the movie"?

Yeah, well, I look at it this way, all of the added exposure due to the Slashdot posting and the replies here are definitely worth the $19.99 I paid for the boxed set. Look at it as my contribution to educating our readers about what DRM brings to the table, if I steered a few people away from buying this boxed set, and steer clear of anything that rieks of DRM with their future purchases, than I accomplished what I set out to do. Obviously I also mailed the producer of the DVD and the manufacturer of the DRM solution featured on it, but they never bothered to reply.

I think the loudest message you can send them is to return for a refund. After a while, they'll get the point.
BTW, Ms. Rice, I am appalled by such profanity from a public figure! What will GW think?? (do you notice all my commas?)
