I can't say I am a fan of Disney, mostly because of self adverting, 
still they are the only  people
people who can re-release Studio Ghibli's works in english, because they 
agreed to do NO editing
of the films but just translation from japanese into english.

While I have taken a few software packages from work to home to work at 
home, like
DOS and some programimg software that never made it back later to work, 
I for the most
part want to buy the software providing it reasonable. The same goes for 
music , I don't mind
paying a resonable sum for music, but I don't think music needs to 
re-priced higher every time
the media changes and quality goes down.
$#@! On being able to get "Those where the days"  by Mary Hopkin from 
Apple records
on CD. I have the used record but my cheap turntable died.
