The Reasons For DVD Region Coding

Jul 23rd, 2011 by dvdxplayer 2,906 views |2 Comments

Why does DVD region coding exist, you ask? According to what the public is being told, such coding is a tool to protect copyright and film distribution rights (in other words, film studio profits).

Movies are released in theaters in different parts from the world at different times throughout the year. That Summer blockbuster in the U.S. may end up being the Christmas blockbuster overseas. If that occurs, the DVD version of the film may be out in the U.S. while it is still showing in theaters overseas.

In order to preserve the financial integrity of the theatrical distribution of a particular film, it is not possible (under normal conditions) to possess a friend in the U.S. send a DVD copy from the film to the country where it is in theatrical release and have the ability to play the DVD on a player there.
