I don't sell bootlegs. Not worth the trouble when you can't resell legal DVDs for more than $2-$3.. Keep 'em or trash 'em would be my advice.

They're illegal to sell, it's called piracy.

You could always repurpose them. Here's an idea:

Ask that question of Wal-Mart, Target and others who still sell them. Must be some kind of market for them.

One answer would be that some people like to have a physical copy of something in their hands and on their shelves and they don't have the ability or knowledge to burn a copy of their own, and they want a true studio copy with studio art. And they might be honest enough to honor the copyright.

Many people still buy DVDs because it's a cheap way to get movie art. Others like the liner notes. This is a reason why records are coming back in a big way and bands today are recording on records again. Right now, this trend is mainly in harder rock, lesser known bands. But the trend is swinging upward! They sell the record for $10-$20 and it comes with download rights for a digital version of their music.

The recording industry as a whole is going digital as it willsave them millions on packaging. Was just in a ,meeting last week where this subject was discussed
