    Though many things have been cleared from view in Times Square in the regimes of the last two mayors, this New Yorker sees pirate DVDs et cetera ad nauseum on sale every day. Our species is good at stealing; there will be plenty of living space in heaven.

      I referred to the bootleggers at the Times Square subway stations — in fact, for you New Yorkers nostalgic for days of yore, on the passageway between the 7th Avenue IRT and 8th Avenue IND lines. I liked the idea that you had to give $2.00 to the Transit Authority before you could buy your bootlegs, and the bootleg dealer had his wares spread out on some very attractive, colorful blankets. All gone to my eyes, no doubt victim to the latest "Times Square Beautification" program. Which is logical, as Disney was given Times Square by America's greatest phony, Uberfuhrer Rudy Giuliani.

    Yes, they should investigate the fraud done by these companies when they wanted everyone to switch to DVD promising they would be cheaper to the consumer to buy then video cassettes. I have never see that happen, and they should be held accountable for about a decade's worth of over profit based on lies. Also everytime they purposefully hold back a director/extended cut of a movie for six months from the original DVD release trying to get consumers to buy almost the same product twice. Mr. Haney of Green Acres is alive and well.

    Just an addendum from the movie This Film Is Not Yet Rated. One expert (I can't remember who it was) in the film stated, that the people who most pirate these movies are the same teenagers who usually still pay money to go see it at the theatre and buy the real thing on DVD later. So this Universal guy would be cutting his own throat if they cracked down on the "pirates" (they wouldn't have to pay to see the movies in prison).
