I found a lawyer who agreed to handle the case. His name is Tegiri
Nenashi. His previous sucess was a suit against PC display industry.
Remember the times when PC manyfactures inflated monitor diagonal
sizes and suddenly they were have to advertice the "actual size"?

Tegiri advised me to file 2 separate cases:

1. Class Action lawsuit against Movie Industry that keeps producing
films with sickening 2.35:1 aspect ratio, in order to make home
theater movie watching experience worthless.
2. Class Action lawsuit against HDTV standards body that promoted
regressive Widescreen Aspect Ratio. Widescreen Monitors are more
expensive for the consumer who have to pay more $$$ per each Square
Inch of the screen area, compared to Standard 4:3. (The suit is
american, so the units are backward).

I will keep this thread posted about this exciting new development.

"Regressive" will get you jail time in the People's Republic of East
Overshoe, but I don't think it's the correct adjective for widescreen. The
only person who will make any money on this class action is Mr. Nenashi,
and it will come out of your pocket!

Talk about frivolous law suits.

So just where is your attorney practicing? Out of curiosity I checked
with the American Bar Association web site and I couldn't an attorney
practicing law under the name Tegiri Nenashi.

If you do a web search for Nenashi...there is also no mention of any
attorney. You'd think if he had won a big case against the PC display
industry there would be some mention of him. Could be possible that the
current search engines don't list fictitious names? I've lost faith in
Google over this.

hmm I know a TV station that broadcasted 4:3 material in 16:9 by
cutting head and feet, I know, because I had the original.

Hmm...

Tegiri: one translation is (literally) "hand cut" -- just the same as
Harakiri means "stomach cut". Coincidence?

Nenashi: literal translation is "no roots" -- like a cut flower.

My conclusion: fake-o-rama. Not as obvious as if the lawyer's name was
Midori Murasaki, but still sounds made up!

Wait! What about disgusting 2.21:1 aspect ratio, or even worse, 2.76:1? How
about the subversive 1.85:1? That has to be a Communist plot!

Seriously, can you spel T-R-O-L-L?

Don't you guys remember Bernie Farber (I think that was the name) from
a few years back -- the supposed "law professor" who was a fanatic for
full-frame 4:3 TV no matter what? He disappeared for a few years but
I guess he's back. He claimed that the smaller letterboxed image on a
TV set was a violation of the Americans with Diabilities Act because
it was harder to see if you had bad eyesight.
