The Null Device

According to the OpenDVD people (keep fighting the good fight!), DVD region coding is illegal in New Zealand; all DVD players legally sold there must be modified to play content from all zones. Of course, DVD manufacturers are contractually prohibited from selling out-of-the-box unzoned consumer DVD players, which makes work for a thriving modification industry. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out; will the content cartels buy out this law, or will there be a trade war or embargo against New Zealand? Or will the DVD zoning system end up collapsing?
