And, by the same token, buy some Quicktime or Video For Windows equipment,
digitize some of Freelancr's music videos off the air, and send them too!

Mike, It seems to me that your glib pirating advice doesn't quite jibe with
your stated concern for the artist's intent in the filmmaking process.  As a
filmmaker myself, I'm daunted by the easy acceptance of copyright violation.
 I've had people actually say to me, "I loved your movie so much I made
several copies for my friends."
