Default Re: NVD Format to Compete With Blu-ray and CHBD in China

So let me get this straight...

-Blu-Ray players are sold in China
-Blu-Ray movies are NOT sold in China

And yet, companies are complaining about piracy in China!? If the Chinese citizens are willing to buy HD movies, but only if they're cheap, why don't these companies release their movies as overly compressed H.264 versions on this new NVD exclusively for China? Movies would be cheaper there, though a bit lower in quality, but they would have a new market.

Or is this like Napster all over again, where the RIAA simply fought digital music pirates simply because the recording industry didn't want to release music in a downloadable format?
