ABSTRACT
The article addresses the issue of additional features in DVD offerings. According to the author, the popularity of supplemental features in DVD has given way to an unwarranted proliferation of DVD collectors editions. Some industry observers argue that the trend of adding one feature to an already popular film and changing the appearance of the DVD box but offering the same thing, is as good as ripping off the public.
