Why are you extrapolating all possible future deals from a few known past deals?
Do you know for a fact that Sony has refused to license limited digital copy runs? Do you know for a fact that Twilight Time or anyone else has even tried?
No, I suspect you don't.
Prior to Twilight Time licensing these 3000 copy limited runs, nobody had done that... so would you have posted that Sony wouldn't do that last year? I mean, since it had never happened, it never would using that logic?
Why does everything have to be an argument?
I made a simple statement that it would be cool if Twilight Time could (note the word "could") license digital copies for their 3000 copy limited runs as a bonus that would set them apart.
Neither you nor I know if Twilight Time thought of this or even tried... so for you to say "it can't happen" just because it hasn't happened makes no sense.
If you can post where Twilight Time has said that they tried to negotiate digital copy rights and were denied, then do so... otherwise it is all conjecture and does nothing to refute the idea that this would be a nice thing for them to be able to do.
I suspect they didn't think of it and have not tried.
Sony, for example, isn't selling digital copies of the movies they have licensed to Twilight Time... so maybe they would have been willing to negotiate for those rights as well.
