When did multiregion/region free become OK? (or has it?) A few years ago I worked for a store who sold DVD players as a bit of a side line but they were all region 2 locked. A number of people asked us for region free versions and we were always told that we had to say that 'the law' was that a box had to be locked to region 2 but they may find reading issue #32 of some DVD mag interesting (needless to say the mag had a remote hack for the player) Has things changed that the DVD player manufactures can now make multiregion players? are other companies just adding the hacks as they arent licenced to the technology which limits the player makers? When did it take off rather than just being a hush hush pasttime?
