Those dollar store DVDs are often made from public domain content available online. O'Reilly readers should be savvy enough to go to http://www.publicdomaintorrents.com/ and download iPod formatted movies from there, or convert AVIs from http://www.archive.org/details/movies.

    I don't consider it a waste of time to buy media with content on it. Sure, the stuff's public domain, but now I don't have to find it online, download it, and then burn it. I have it right there.

    Some of us even buy CDs with software on them instead of downloading and burning ISOs!
