Lightbulb A Major Change to iTunes in the Cloud!

I noticed today a bug that flagged 30 or so of my movies as hidden. Meanwhile I missed that I now have access to Anchorman - a movie that is still not available for sale in the iTunes Store.

Is it just me or did Apple just implement a policy change for content creators to make available content to past purchasers even if it is not currently available for sale?

That is the only title this happened to, but I believe that is the only one that has been pulled since buying (I'm very quick to ask for refunds if a movie is pulled).

Have others noticed this change - what movies have you bought that were pulled that are now back again? I'm curious to hear if its just me - check your hidden purchase tab - too!

Edited, I thought Anchorman is available as a net search brings up the movie but an itunes search does not. Odd.

My iTunes is still not seeing it as for sale - (USA Store) - even the link from Anchorman itself "in the store" shows it as not available.

It is available in Australia and other stores internationally.

In iCloud but cannot buy

I purchased LILYA-4EVER some time ago (harrowing and adult content) on iTunes. It shows up as a purchased movie, and can be downloaded or streamed from iCloud to my MacBook. It even pops up as a search item, when searching in the iTunes store. But it would seem that the movie is not available for new purchasers, at least not in my region.

I guess either Apple or the vendor have pulled it from the store. I'm just glad that I still have the ability to get the item that I paid for, and I sincerely hope that this will remain the case for all of my purchased media, whether or not it is withdrawn from sale some time in the future.

That's awesome - this is really starting to sound like a policy change from Apple (they may have been getting tired of refund requests from customers angry at "stolen" content)

Curious if I didn't request refunds on my other pulled movies if they would be back too ...
