It’s not very uplifting to load a disc to DVD or Blu-ray player and to notice the first thing that pops in the screen is a threat that I’m really close to being jailed. This could get me in big trouble. And I’m not even trying to steal someone’s car or to poop in a police offer’s hat — trying just to enjoy a film. It’s bought. It’s paid. Maybe one reason people pirate films is because they don’t want to see such anti-piracy notifications.
