I'm wondering...isn't anyone worried about Lucasfilm filing a copyright infringement case here? Did anybody get permission to edit this film which is the property of someone else? Last time I checked, it was a punishable offense to alter a motion picture without permission and is enforced by Interpol? You guys are playing with fire here.
It's sort of a gray area, but we try our best to be reasonable with it--the fan editors here at OT.com never make a profit from their work and have always strongly encouraged others to legally purchase a copy of any and all films that they download fan edits of.
On a personal note, I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was five. I've purchased TPM and both the original unaltered trilogy and the '97 special edition on VHS, all three prequels on DVD, both the box set and individual releases of the original trilogy on DVD, and the complete saga blu-ray box set. That's not even taking into account the piles of money I've spent on buying Star Wars toys, video games, t-shirts, costumes, and countless other collectibles over the years. In other words, Lucasfilm has made their money from me, and will continue to do so; neither this nor any other fan edit is interfering with that. I therefore feel no guilt in downloading fan edits for my own personal viewing, and I think the majority of us here feel more or less the same.
