Something we shouldn't forget is that MUFON needs funding in order to conduct research.
I'm pretty sure we'd all Like to give them a buck or two, but honestly, how many of us do? (I know I don't)
something to think about before getting ticked at them for trying to 'make a buck' off of a 'ufo' pic....
they do some good work, and good work don't come cheap.

If Aykroyd and MUFON wanted to spread the word, it would be best to get the video out to the public while MSM is still giving it any attention. If they wait a year, then all public intrest will have died down. Really, how many people did his last dvd reach? Unless your a regular on this or other boards like these. Iv'e never seen a commercial for it. Use the MSM against themselves when they give a big story like this attention knowing there is no proof They know anyone with good proof will hold out for a better deal to make more $$$, so why not reprot it like people were just seeing things. The best way to bring global attention to the ufo subject is to use the media which will reach the masses, not some straight to dvd unreleased dan aykroyd seal of approval hidden footage. ... SHOW THE WORLD, don't hide it on a order only dvd.

How is he that confident that his is the ONLY video out there? How does he "know" any others won't materialize, before the DVD release? He calls it "exclusive". Based on witnesses testimony, other photos and video were observed being taken, and who knows who else took some.

This is part of the problem with the UFO phenomenon and why no one takes it seriously.
Maybe this is an alien craft or maybe it's not, but no matter what...it is a security and safety breach over an airport! Unfortunately, Akroyd had to pay money to get this, which in turn he does have a right to get back or make some money off of.
Yet, this reduces the importance of the event since this now becomes entertainment instead of information. Do you think science and the public are going to take this seriously when you have to buy a DVD in a year to actually see the event? How are we helping to prove aliens are visiting the planet if we charge $20 to see a DVD first? I just see this event going to waste if something so public is put under wraps for a year.
Debunkers love this...it gives them a year to come up with excuses and a much smaller audience to debate since the only people who care will be those who saw the DVD. A few in the media might still show it in a year, but right at the end of the news or somehow find a way to squeeze it in between the multiple over hyped weather 'fear"casts that the news do now.
Releasing a picture for free is least we can ask to help push the issue. Strike while the iron is hot Dan!

On a more serious note. If the ATS admin were to get exclusive rights to footage like this do you think they would charge for the members to see it in one way or another?
