After all, it's the consumer (you) I'm trying to represent here.

I consider myself to be a consumer (have both BD games <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> ) - and understand your point of view => you are a legal consumer and don't want restrictions due to having the CD in the drive, for reasons I understand, too (damage, having to re-buy, swap, mobile playing via laptop etc.)

These reasons are valid up to a certain point in my case => concerning damage.

Why? If I buy a certain product, I know it has a limited life span, this is something I accept in all trade products. I don't consider software on a hardware "transporter" unlimited. If my product takes damage within the legal time limit guarantee, I want a refund. I guess, I would think differently, if I had encountered a CD damage due to the CD-drive during my gaming times, but I have yet to make this XP (not looking forward to it though).
