I do not enjoy reading nasty typed comments any more than I would if delivered in person. Some online poster (not here) comments are downright scary!

I'm a lover by nature, not a fighter.

Blame the internet. Now anyone can earn a medical degree (not to mention decades of specialization experience) in just a few minutes on Goggle!!!

If it's any consolation, the DVD will be replaced with something else, and then you will feel better about not having the DVD version.
Guess I'll have to buy the White Album again.... again!

I estimate that 90% of the online comments on my local papers website come from no more than 40 people out of a population that must include one million adults. Most of these people have an axe to grind and will bend any news story to grind it. You could write a science story about why the sky is blue and their comments will be something like; "Of course it's blue, this a a commie pinko blue state", or "The right wing zealots will not stop until the sky falls in on all our civil rights!"

In the late 70s, after the band Steppenwolf broke up, some of the members wanted to tour again using the name, but without leader/lead singer john Kay.

Kay agreed to the use of the band name, with the stipulation that the other members would give up their rights to royalties from song plays and album sales. At the time, sales were rather paltry, and the remainder of the group agreed.

Quote:
After hearing of these other Steppenwolf incarnations, John Kay was furious, since an original agreement among the band members in the early 1970s stated that anyone leaving forfeited any rights on the group's name, while the last original members standing when the group disbanded (Kay and Jerry Edmonton) would have exclusive claims on the name hereafter. At their lawyers' advice, Kay and Edmonton agreed to license the name to the others. This licensing agreement stated that McJohn and St. Nicholas would have to give up their Steppenwolf royalties forever to go forward. They both agreed. Eventually, this agreement was terminated after promised fees were not paid to Kay and Edmonton. Kay then took to the road in 1980 with a new line-up as John Kay and Steppenwolf.
Then came CDs...
