"UK grocer Tesco has launched a one-company war against DVD 'zoning' -- the fixing of DVD players and discs to operate only within specific world markets.
In a letter to the president of Warner Home Video, Warren Liebefarb, Tesco world sourcing director Christine Cross dismissed zoning as an 'unnecessary practice'.
She described the regulations as being "against the spirit of free competition and potentially a barrier to trade".
