Oliver Wendell Jones writes "This article at E! Online News states that they are getting ready to overturn the ban on screener DVDs and have reached a compromise on who will still be able to receive screeners. It looks like they're leaving out a lot of people who benefited from them before, but it probably still won't have any effect on movie piracy in the long run." This sounds similar to earlier rumors of an overturn. They say that screeners will still go out to Academy Award voters, but that's it. They're going to try to keep a much tighter lid on the screener copies, which, as mentioned above will have little to no effect on movies showing up online.
