Re: Could someone in Canada help me with a Redbox DVD?

No, I am 100% certain that you'll pay only $1.50 for 20 days (for a total of $30 plus tax) if you never return the disc. I have done this on 2 occasions myself.

Re: Could this be a counterfeit DVD set?

How do places like Amazon and iTunes get their MP3/AAC files?

I'm just curious how Amazon and iTunes have so many MP3/AAC files for sale, including a lot of old albums. Is there someone whose job is to just sit there all day long and rip CDs to MP3/AAC format?...
