There is plenty that could be done but why would you want to? Ultimately, short of a complaint to trading standards or whatever it would require action by the copyright holders, who manifestly either can't be bothered or don't even know that they hold the copyright.
Let me be clear here: I would far rather pay the going rate for a bona fide DVD of ATL but rather than never watch the film ever again, I'll settle for an unauthorised copy.
OK, technically this is theft but then so is removing a telly from a skip after someone who doesn't want it has thrown it out. Where's the harm?

Went down this road a couple of years ago with ATL trying to find out what was the score about copyright on the movie-run into a big pile of doo doo as there is an ongoing dispute about it-The Beeb don't own it,the director who seems to have intellectual copyright don't seem to own it either,and the bod selling the pirate copies DEFINITELY don't own it!-and it seems that to actually stop him selling them,the FACT folks have to act on behalf of the copyright holder-catch 22- the original production company basically doesn't exist anymore either-got very confused trying to find out and gave up! :?

Can it actually be that NO ONE owns it, and therefore, anyone can sell it?

The original 'Night Of The Living Dead' ended up something like this- director George A. Romero and his associates ended up without the rights to their own film, and anyone who pleases can sell the film- and have done so.

If this is the case, perhaps the BBP should do a bells and whistles super-duper version of it's own with a few extra features etc and sell it too- at least the money would go to a better cause than some opportunist pirate's pocket! :roll:

If it's his own pic then it's his copyright so I s'pose that's above board. It's not one of ours. I'm looking forward to putting that badge back on though.

i recorded across the Lake on VHS when it was first screened on BBC and the tape got chewed as i watched it so much! i am guilty of buying a pirate copy on dvd and have watched it many times too , and i personally think Anthony Hopkins portrayal is superb! can i also add, if it is ever released officially i will buy a copy without doubt! :D
