I'm not talking about DVD or Laserdisc or VHS, only Blu-ray. I know it's really fun to pick apart posts and take everything as literally as possible, but try to restrain yourselves. To be as clear as possible: whereas both LOTR and LOTREE are available on Blu-ray so that consumers may choose which version to purchase, Lucas only allows the modified versions on Blu-ray, giving consumers no choice. (other than the choice not to buy it) Lucas has denied ALL access to the original theatrical films on Blu-ray.
In that way, Jackson and Lucas are in no way comparable.
