This is true but since most of the things they would sell would be basically
cheap stuff ( $30 or less) and they would surely take responsibility for
copies that arrive damaged not sure it is a big deal. It would seem rather
unusual for a distributor to sell additional rights on a copy they did not
sell you directly but if lets say Kino sold you PPR rights on a copy of
DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST you got from a wholesaler we would let you have a
replacement at a retail price as opposed to a PPR price so I am not sure
this would be an issue
