Copyright warnings

The annual DVD Copyright Warning Awards has gone to Island Vidvorun.

DVD Copyright Warning Award WINNER 2006
DVD Warning - Island Vidvorun

Awarding the DVD Copyright Warning Award 2006 to Island Vidvorun, the judges said the island's DVD copyright warning was:

"One of the most pithy DVD copyright warnings we have ever seen."

The runners-up in this years awards were Germany which included the sentence:

"Die Nutzung fur nicht gewerbliche Zwecke im privaten Bereich be-inhaltet nicht die Vorfuhrung in Clubs, Reisebussen, Krankenhausrn, Hotels, Gefangrissen, Schulen, auf Bohrinseln, etc."

And Italy, for what the judges said was 'pure DVD copyright warning poetry':

"Questo DVD non puo essere espotato, distribuito o venduto al di furori del territorio dell'Unione Europea, senza espressa autorizzazione della Warner Home Video."

DVD copyright warnings, which appear at the end of the presentation, are ignored by most people who watch DVDs, especially in countries where they have to sit through 20 warnings before getting to the one in their own language. The DVD Copyright Warning Award was originally founded to help popularize the warning process.

Here, we have a 4 minute and 42 second video tribute highlighting the cutting edge of Region 2 DVD Copyright Warnings. Enjoy.
