One thought about the overuse of the term "censorship"

Is it censorship if a private company refuses to take a video
duplication order? They are the ones who won't be getting paid. As long
as there are duplicators willing to take the order it doesn't seem like
censorship. No more than its censorship when any of us elect not to buy
(or distribute) a given title - we all have our own standards. It's a
free market and I'm glad to see that Milos is exercising his right to
take his business elsewhere when a service provider pisses him off in
some way. Though it may not technically be censorship it is certainly
grounds to consider a boycott of Allied Digital.
