I've been trying to get a copy for myself, and even though I am one who NEVER goes to funerals, I don't find this "goulish" at all. (Personally, I think the TV show "Fanily Plots" is MUCH more goulish.) It's a MEMORIAL NOT A FUNERAL! Now if it was footage of Jim's body actually being cremated, I think that all of us here would all want that banned outlawed. I think the question should be whether or not anyone is actually making money off this. If the disks are being sold at cost, or for trade only, then it is simply sharing memories. (Please contact me if you have such.) I can't speak for the company or the family's feelings on this, but the memorial was public, press and all, and the funeral itself was totally private. Clips of the memorial have been used in various documentaries, and I'm sure everyone knows how much Jim meant to us and except the fact that his being a public figure creates interest and demand. While I'm sure they would brefer it not be an issue, they are not issuing an "official" DVD version so as not to totally exploit the man and his memory. Both sides are staying out of the contriversy by allowing the true fans to get hold of a copy without prosicution, but not supporting or encouraging licensing control over it either. I want a copy since it is the closing chapter in the life of Jim Henson and without it, it's like a book that is missing the last few pages. A memorial service such as this gives us all a chance to remember Jim, thank him and say goodbye.
