It’s a Christmas miracle! That is, if by miracle, you mean yet another example of the limits of “ownership” in the digital world.
Last Saturday evening, Bill Jackson, a Wisconsin father, sat down to watch a nice Disney film with his two kids, aged two and eight.
As they were settling in for a cozy night of “Prep & Landing 2: Naughty vs. Nice,” the elder son discovered that the film that the family had paid $3 for was no longer available.
“My son actually came to me and said: ‘The special isn’t showing,’” Jackson told Ars. “He’s eight years old and I thought he didn’t know what he was doing. But he was right—it was no longer present. I called Amazon and thought it was a glitch. We use a Roku and it wasn’t there either.”
