For other USA peeps out there, there appears to be a bill in congress at the 
moment related to copy-writtened CDs, encrypted DVDs, and other fair use of 
media you have rightfully obtained. Go here ( and click on 
DMCA reform) and show your support for reforming legislation that infringes 
your fair use. 

Among other things, this bill seeks to correct the reason why many distros 
can't support DVD playback 'out of the box'. 

For those of you who don't give a flip about regulations and are going to do 
as you please, you could do the rest of us a favor and support the 
possiblity of some good legislation.
