Here is a situation.
Been filming a dance school over the past 10 years.
Every show I have sold between 60 and 80 dvd copies without a copyguard.
I filmed a show in december 2010 for the school and this time I put a copyguard on the DVDs and initialy sold 65 copies.
The customers were not told about the copyguard and No extra orders were asked for which was very unusual.The school was over the moon with the job and also thought they would sell more copies.
Anyway filmed another show in May for the school. Waited for 30 days as usual for the school to get in the orders.
BUT GUESS WHAT. Only 11 copies ordered. Luckily the school signed a contract where they have to buy a minimum.
Now all I`m guessing is that the school which has over 250 pupils in the show were probably ordering one copy then making copies to give relatives etc., but now they have realised they can now longer copy them they have not ordered.
Could I be wrong....
Does anyone think putting a copyguard on your DVDs is a good or bad option?
