Excdellent arguement, Ethyl. And I agree, innovation and marketing genius have helped to improve our lives, as well as worsen it. But your arguement rests on a shaky premise: The rom being considered the same as a cd/cart. Because roms are copies of the game. I bet Blockbuster would have been sued to hell if they made copies of the NES, SNES, Genesis, PSX 1 and 2, X BOX, Gamecube, Saturn, N 64 etc. games and rented them out (and later sold as used). Thats where these guys may have trouble, but, good luck to them. The fact americans will buy, watch, eat and listen to pure garbage probably inspired them. And what they are renting - old NES games - are far from garbage but supreme classics.
