And the environmental cost not just of transportation of the goods, but of people driving to and from stores? You've got to be kidding if you think serving the files digitally takes up one tenth of one percent of those resources.

If that's the case people need to understand that buying the movie off iTunes instead of buying the Blu-ray isn't the best solution.

Did your really mean to add that bit at the end?

There is a large environment cost in digital distribution, that is a fact, if you want to ignore it then that is your issue.
