Licensing or ...?

Postby Uli Ruedel » Tue Oct 20, 2009 2:50 pm

Just what is going on on the German DVD market?

Some strange similarities to the US "Silent Comedy Mafia" DVD here:
http://www.amazon.de/Die-Stummfilm-Mafia-Stan-Laurel/dp/B0013EIK54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1256064248&sr=1-1

And suddenly Weiss(orama)n shorts show up as well?

http://www.amazon.de/Ben-Turpins-Slapstick-Hits-Turpin/dp/B002LSPVGW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1256064126&sr=1-1

What's going on? Some surprisingly enterprising and laudable licensing, or something else? And no, haven't seen any of these discs, so I don't know anything more...

Pirates! Call our attorneys! If my jokes have been translated in German on the commentaries, we'll have their liver and lights! As far as stealing our Mafia name, we'll just deal with it as usual and send a couple of "Boys" over to talk to them.

Who says we only kill our own?

Thanks Uli (and Richard) for the heads-up. This is an unauthorized bootleg of my work, and I've asked Amazon to take action.
