Warner Bros. to Toddlers: Intellectual Property Protection Means Scary People Scream at You

To whoever at Warner Bros. thought it was a good idea to start the DVD of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with a “clever” (and either difficult or impossible to skip) anti-piracy announcement , beginning with a clip of the bellowing Wizard of Oz and winding up with the shrieking death throes of the Wicked Witch of the West: it was not a good idea.

This is what it means to buy properly licensed children’s video entertainment? “Pirating DVDs is stealing,” it says. Between stealing and bullying, I think I’ll have to teach my kid to go with stealing, thanks.
