Disrupting Amazon

If you have kids, you'll know the half life of DVD's is pretty small. After a few weeks they get scratched and become useless. Maybe you go onto your PC and burn a copy.

I'd like to see (if this does not already exist!!) a company (like Amazon) store the fact you have purchased a DVD and be prepared to send you a backed-up copy on request. So when it gets scratched, I go back onto "my purchases" and click "order new copy". Sure they could limit this to say 5 over a period of years, but it would seriously be of use! At least until this can be downloaded direct from the web. Are DVDs possible the most unfriendly medium for kids films there has EVER been?? All the old video tapes we have are fine!
