No James, your analogy is way off. Music CD's are commercially produced and, if produced by an individual, very inexpensive to author. Video, on the other hand, takes expensive software (in this case Sonic Scenarist) time consuming gathering the appropriate clips and then the assembly/authoring process. Not to mention the cover and dvd art.
He made it availabe to the community at no charge (via Torrent btw), however, those that wanted him to burn a copy was their choice. And, quite frankly, you're the first, including those that already purchased it, to even comment on the price.
Again, he wasn't trying to be "ahead" so he didn't ask that anyone chip in. Although there was an option to donate any amount via PayPal, which many members have done. Look at it as being akin to shareware.
However, yes I agree that use of the clips is certainly a grey area.
James, bottom line, buy a BD burner.
