It's been a while since I've been with corporate, but my feeling is that criminal is all that's looked at. You would have had to have signed an acknowledgment that you authorized them to specifically...

Well, it's a lost cause for franchisees. We simply can't buy/move enough thin margin product to make it worthwhile. There's certainly a place for retail in our stores, done correctly. Blockbuster has...

All DVD players have always played CDs. It's part of the DVD spec to be able to play 'redbook' CDs. CD-R and other formats will vary.
