Jessica is right. I looked at theextensive website yesterday. There are
long lists including
a lot of Japanese, Soviet, German,and Latin American Films, and others too.

Famous titles such as Ikiru and Rashomon, M, Exterminating Angel.

These are listed under NIE's..."Notice of Intent to Enforce."
In other words, the copyright holders have given notice that they will
pursue
pirates, etc.Criminal penalties are stiff.

So if you've been putting off adding to your foreign film
collection....perhaps you should hurry.
This is part of a much bigger picture..cracking down on bootleg CD's,
computer software, as well as films.
