Interesting...

discussion on future of TV show entertainment.

My own Selfish Desires aside, considering that HBO is charging $60 for a full-season DVD set of 'Six Feet Under,' the proposed $40 seems to be a bargin.

My one curiosity is how copyright and licensing issues might change from this. If, for example, Firefly is, for all intents and purposes, 'owned' by the fans who have paid for it, does Whedon still own the rights to the show itself?

OTOH, I think it makes the solution a very neat one: If you love the show that much, pony up the bucks. If not, quit yer griping if it doesn't get made.
