Mom, Son Find Porn On Rented Disney Tape
local6 ^ | April 22, 2005

Posted on 04/23/2005 9:40:04 PM PDT by stainlessbanner

A 49-year-old woman and her 12-year-old son were shocked when a Disney movie they rented from a Central Florida public library was instead filled with images of hard-core pornography, according to Local 6 News.

Shirley Satcher rented the Disney movie, "Home on the Range," from the Alachua County Headquarters Library at 401 E. University Ave. in downtown Gainesville.

Satcher checked three different spots on the tape and discovered that the adult movie, "Voyeur #5" filled the entire videotape.

"You know, you think it's a Walt Disney (movie) but you go ahead and see what Walt Disney is talking about and of course this isn't Walt," Satcher said. "I just can't imagine this was manufactured there."

The tape passed through the library's downtown Gainesville, Fla., location as one of 300,000 VHS tapes in stock, Local 6 News reported.

"We need to examine and see if there's any way to identify if a tape has been tampered with," library director Sol Hirsch said. "Sometimes there is with VHS. If we know that something has been tampered with because the tapes that we buy are typically not designed to be recorded over."

Hirsch has issued a memo warning his staff to be on the lookout for the person who dubbed over the Disney tape.

Good time to switch to DVDs, especially if you're going to be renting.

About like buying used magazines from a teenager and assuming he had a habit of reading while eating pancakes and syrup.

I know someone who bought a commercial-brand VHS title from a completely mainstream retailer.... the tape inside was a high school football game.

It was factory-sealed, with all the proper labels, stickers, and tags on it. Strange.

Its just to easy to tape over the "protection hole" on the recorded tapes. Unless there is a way to defeat that, I suppose anyone could dub over a rental tape. DVD recorders are cheaper now than VCR's so at least that won't be a problem for long, and as for the new DVD recorders, I suppose you can't copy those because of copy protection as easily. With video tape even if it had "macro-vision" protection, it was easy to defeat with a macro-scrubber type device. Its to bad people think its funny to do things like that.

My wife told me many years ago someone she was dating took her to see "Alice in Wonderland". Mrs. Beancounter is a smart lady. I have yet to understand why she didn't recognize some of the signs that this was not your mother's Alice.

At the very beginning of the movie, Alice asked the Mad Hatter if that 7 1/2 was his hat size. He said no...

She left the movie.

Precisely. I've done that myself. There's a little tab at the back end you punch out if you don't want it accidentally taped over. If you change your mind, you just stick a piece of tape over the opening.

Then there was the Japanese tourist who was arrested coming back into Japan because he was carrying a copy of "Hannah Does Her Sisters".

The moral of the story is: don't skimp on the Japanese to English Phrase Book.

This type of thing really isn't anything new. Wonder how it even made the papers - must've been a slow day. Either way, within 10 years VCRs will be primitive relics, so who really cares anymore??

Seven and a half? I thought the original Mad Hatter's hat bore a tag that said 10/6, meaning ten shilling sixpence, a sum of money also referred to as a half-guinea. For the alluded subject matter, I would think 10/6 (or 10 1/2) would be a more plausible "size" than 7 1/2 also.

10 1/2, 7 1/2, It was a long time ago. Give me a break here. If I were any good with numbers I wouldn't be working for the government. Anyway, it is the bigger picture that matters.

Yes. I'm surprised they are even Renting video tapes any more. I'm still waiting for memory to become cheap enough so that we can rent all our movies on a memory chip. I think in a few years DVRs will be replaced with solid state player/recorders with no moving parts.

Not for a little while yet. First, Apple and Co. are going to use Broadband internet to download movies to your Mini-mac in HDTV format (Mini-mac supports both Blu-ray and HD-DVD encryption techniques). The more bandwidth and memory size we get; the trend seems to be for higher quality video, not simply more video. But, someday I think you will be correct; just not in the next 5 years or so.

Though I'm no particular fan of VHS, I find certain aspects of technological paths frightening, as studios seem to want to push media that can only be viewed with their "permission". Fifty years ago, if you bought a movie you could watch it whenever you wanted and, if you kept in a cool dry place, your descendents would be able to watch it 50 years later. Will the same thing be true of next-generation DVD's?

Already some producers like Lucas have tried to '1984' their earlier pictures, but at least some copies of the original survive in Laserdisk form. If studios have their way, they'll be able to retain control of every copy of their works in existence and revise them at will.

Also we're going to have to improve on data compression to keep up with the increasing quality of video and audio as we start to eat up more and more bandwidth, and not just cheaper priced memory.

I agree with you on the protection. I can see the point of companies wanting to protect their product, but we do have a right to have a backup/protected copy of our own purchases. And not like those "generous" companies that will send you an archive copy for a fee. Something will have to be worked out between the consumer and the MPAA. If the MPAA would at least try to be more willing to compromise.

300,000 VHS tapes

Signs of the times: libraries with more obsolete VHS tapes than books, which are often sold as "excess" so even more video features can be added to the inventory.

What with Blockbuster, Hollywood Video and now Netflix where you can keep your DVD as long as you want -- even past the library's due date -- why are libraries even in the business of loaning out commercial videos? Just keeping tabs on them would be a major undertaking; reviewing those turned in for unauthorized dubbing of porn over a Disney cartoon is next to impossible.

A public library's primary mission should be (although it seldom is these days) preserving those works of literature, representative of the country's arts and culture which are likely to be unavailable to future generations. Books go out of print and get eaten by acid; videos on DVD last forever.

Put the emphasis on books, though, and watch the library's budget shrink as patrons check out fewer items.

BTW, for a librarian, Sol Hirsch seems lacking in both verbal and technical skills. "Sometimes there is with VHS"? What's that supposed to mean?

Actually, prerecorded DVDs have a lifespan of between 50 to 300 years :) Here's a link to a little info on the lifespan of digital media: http://www.darkrealmfox.com/dvdlifespan.html

With the exception of University libraries and a few big city main branches, most public libraries have mainly popular fiction and children's books, a few popular periodicals and a few shelves of basic reference materials. If you want the 'great works' you will probably have better luck online. There are several sources and formats.

One of the most promising projects is the Stanford/Google one. "Stanford recently announced an ambitious plan to cooperate with Google Inc. in digitizing hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of books from the shelves of Stanford libraries and making them available to readers worldwide and without charge." http://speaking.stanford.edu/highlights/SU,_Google-Books_Online.html

The Google project has upset the French government, since it will solidify English as the language of the internet.

DUH! Tape over the pits in the back and you can record over any VHS.

Those are the write-protect mechanism and have tabs on the blank tapes you buy which can be broken off to prevent inadvertently recording over something you want to keep.

The question is, who had the tape last?
