Class Action lawsuit against Movie Industry

Archived from groups: alt.video.dvd.tech,rec.arts.movies.tech,alt.tv.tech.hdtv (More info?)

Tegiri informed me about his progress. He filed 2 separate cases:
1. Los Angeles County Superior Court. California state vs. DVD
manufacturers. Seeking $25M in damages for consumer misinformation and
confusion caused by multutude of aspect ratio formats. DVD
manufacturers would require framing all the cover box graphics into
the *actual* aspect ratio used on disk.
2. San Diego County Superior Court. California state vs. TV
manufacturers. Seeking $35M in damages. Consumer fraud: model with
widescreen aspect ratio and same diagonal having much less screen
area. TV industry would require to rename their models with explicit
screen area size. For example 1.55-Sony would mean that it has screen
1.55 square meters.

I've also met another anti-widesceen activist Hrundi V. Bakshi. Next
Saturday - June 18 - he is organizing a boycott of Paramount Studios
Theme Park in Hollywood.

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

    For those who do not know Japanese, Tegiri Nenashi is a joke name.

    So is Mikito Harakiri.

    Isn't Tegiri Nenashi the same "attorney" you that mentioned in earlier
    posts who the American Bar Association or the State Bar of California

    It was a joke. I'll ask Tegiri and will get back with real docket numbers.

    > Matthew (he is a troll)

    It doesn't matter. Why, after all, every cereal box has an idiot proof
    disclaimer telling not to open it from the bottom part (otherwise, it will
    spill over the floor, duh!), but movie aspect ratio is hidden somewhere in
    fine print? Perhaps, when movie industry would see these lawsuits as money
    drain, they would turn their attention to consumer, and would stop paying
    attention to idiots that are trying to prove that extremely wide cereal
    boxes would give you more nutrition with less calories.

    In what world does cereal come in a box with no enclosing bag?

    I'm very pleased to see Sherlocks actively working the case:-) Here is a
    little hint: use google. Admittedly, it won't help much with my name, but
    would give you a clue about the other 2.
