I just hope they can play a PAL tape if they want SONG OF THE SOUTH
last I checked this was the ONLY illegal video that was actually policed on
eBay. Disney pulls it ALL THE TIME. They can NOT stop the legit
PAL copies from the UK or Japanese laser discs but I have seen them pull all
the other copies. I only wish the people who owned PORGY & BESS and
THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY and the thousands of over illegal videos would stop
this on eBay. Normally I hate Disney and while I think they should release
the movie, they are well within their rights to try to stop bootlegs
