Well folks this is VERY TOUCHY issue. I assume the copy of Xala you bought
was a British PAL copy. The problem is that the film has totally legal US
distributor, NEW YORKER FILMS and they for a number of reasons have never
released it on video. It is AVAILABLE on film. I believe that a video of a
title legally owned by a US company that HAS NOT released it, is an illegal
copy because it violates the rights of the company owning the film. I
imagine that some people feel otherwise
