Well, they still suck. I actually would buy some videos and music if I
could actually get the same quality files as those released on medium.

As far as I know, this doesn't exist anywhere. There's no place I could
go and buy electronically a CD or a DVD/Blu-ray and actually get the
pure thing without any hassles or copy protection or whatever.

I've searched alot for this actually and found some crappy stores,
either selling MP3 or jumping through so god damn many hoops that I'd
rather just wait until I find a torrent for it.
