Not if you live in a banana republic like France. See the price of DVD
That's because there's a huge tax on them, which is proportional to
the storage space.
Thanks to that tax, everyone with a little practical sense orders
disks from Germany or UK, instead of buying from a local store.
An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing
which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations
down to a town meeting or a vestry.
