It was only a matter of time...
« on: October 18, 2006, 04:30:45 PM »
EDIT: T'was a link to some rifftrax oriented ebay auction. I'm removing it, just in case the mods would prefer it not be here. I should've known better than to start a thread...rules were bound to be broken. Or maybe not. How should I know...but just in case. ;)

Seems a bit pricey.... plus he says this:

Quote
I will also removed Disembaudio's voice from the DVD-R. (Those unfamiliar with RiffTrax, Disembaudio is a loud computerized voice in the RiffTrax mp3 used to sync the DVD player and your mp3 player about every 10 minutes throughout the movie. Since your back up copy and mp3 will be pre-synced on a single disc, he ends up just being a nuisance)

Nuisance?  How dare he speak that way of the beloved toaster???  Disembaudio's legal team is drafting a cease and desist order as we speak.  Nobody disses the Dis!

But besides that, I don't think there is anything necessarily wrong with what he is doing.  The buyer has to buy the used DVD from him and the rifftrax from Rifftrax.com to get the combined DVD.  It looks to me that he is just selling a service, albeit an over-priced service.

Well, I wasn't really saying there was anything wrong with it (though I agree on it being overpriced). I just came across it, felt like sharing, and well...who else would care beside the RiffTrax faithful?  ;)

Well, at least he's not selling the rifftrax with it.  I suppose the price goes into the service.

I've been reported? Seriously?

Well, if so...that's cool. It's not like it's my auction...but feel free to shoot the messenger. Just be warned, I reserve the right to rise again, maybe as a prison guard in a bad Coleman Francis flick. A bad Coleman Francis flick? What am I saying?!

But if my posting that is a violation of some sort, I apologize. I'll go ahead and remove the active link, just in case.

Will you guys please stop hammering my auction?

If I have time, I will post a link to my eBay auction of three 5-minute Matrix Rifftrax, all contained on a single floppy disk, signed by Mike Hodgeson and Kevin Jo Pehl. Bids start at $99.

Being reported probably just means they would of deleted ther link.

Actually, there doesn't seem to be anything illegal (towards Rifftrax) in that auction. It's basically a DVD and service being sold. The Rifftrax(k?) has to be provided by the buyer. He's not selling the Rifftrax himself.

This is an interesting dilemma...

Firstly, it would appear that everything he is doing is "legal" in regards to him and us. However, everything is /not/ legal in regards to him and Paramount Pictures...

He is offering to synch the tracks (and he claims that DA is a nuisance, which I don't like one bit). Now - by offering to synch the tracks, it is very likely that he could attract the WRONG kind of attention and though /we/ are not doing anything illegal, one may argue that we are encouraging people to do what this guy is doing, simply by offering the product...

My advice is for everyone NOT to do what this guy did, and give us some time to resolve the issue. It will likely just sink between the cracks....hopefully

Thanks
