I'm guessing it's supposed to say "Region Free".
I didn't even know DVD players had region locking.

DVD's do, but Blu Ray doesn't. North America is region 1, Europe is region 2 and so on. Makes it a pain in the bum for me and Kristi trying to remember which DVD's can be played where as we only have one region free player in the house.

Blu-rays have region locking, too, the regions are A, B, C, and so on.

All the Blu Rays we have play fine on our normal players with no region issues, whereas the regular DVD's cause problems. Currently I am watching my European Blu Ray of The Last Star fighter on a normal US Blu Ray player.

It's a relic of the old distribution system. The creators license different distributors the exclusive right to release movies in specific territories. This was necessary and made a lot more sense when you were dealing solely with physical copies of films, but now it's just a leftover.

It's probably a Region 0 (all-region) Blu-ray. You can have all region DVDs too. My special edition Blu-ray of THE REFLECTING SKIN won't play on my Blu-ray machine unless I return it to factory settings and then choose a new Blu-ray region.

yep, region locking sucks! I was just reminded of this recently when I finally bought a blu ray of THE CAR. I wasnt paying attention when I bought it on ebay for $5. I was excited because I had been looking for a reasonably priced version for a few years, finally found one too cheap to pass up. "why isnt anybody else bidding on this movie?", I wondered. When the movie arrived, it was in a strange transparent-white case. "hmmm, I thought. Ive never seen a blu ray case like this before". There was a very nice booklet included with lots of history on the developement, production and history of the movie. "hmm, must be a special edition  version of the film".  Collectors know that feeling when you find something thats been on your list, and you find it at low price. Well, a short time later, as I preparing to enjoy some B-movie goodness, my blu ray player politely told me that my movie was region B and that I would not be watching this movie any time soon. Denied.............

One could argue that atheism and agnosticism are religions.  Depends on how one defines religion.  I've seen it defined as both belief in the supernatural and as a viewpoint which effects the way one responds to the world.  (Of course one can believe in the supernatural w/o believing in a god/gods, and I'm sure there are more alternate definitions which could complicate this further.)

Still a funny picture.  Will my copy of Ben-Hur work on that player?

Yes, Ben-Hur is in bold. 'Cause the title is so BIG it demands bold typefaces.
