Why has someone converted all of these distribution credits

Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland [fi]  (2017) (Finland) (Blu-ray) (DVD)

to this

Warner Home Video [fi]  (2017) (Finland) (Blu-ray)


THERE IS NOT SUCH DISTRIBUTOR IN FINLAND AS WARNER HOME VIDEO!!!

The DVD and Blu-ray covers clearly state that "Distributed by Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland".

Please restore them the way they were. And be extra careful with years. DVDs and Blu-rays were not necessary released simultaneously.

You may start with Olive Kitteridge (2014):

Warner Home Video (2015) (Finland) (DVD)

should read:

Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland (2015) (Finland) (Blu-ray) (DVD)

Hi Kari -

I understand that you are referring to Company credits (more specifically company distributor credits).  If you have identified titles where incorrect changes have been made to distributor credits on the site, please submit the applicable corrections through our online Update form and our editors will take another look.

I'm most curious to know who is responsible for this mess. Why would anyone intervene in something he or she knows nothing?


Warner Home Video [fi] ceased to exist in Finland 1999. One of their last DVD releases was Jack Frost (1998) in December 1999.

Soon after that Sandrew Metronome Distribution Finland took over Warner Bros. movies. To my knowledge last Sandrew released Warner movie was Kill the Irishman (2010) in September 2011.

So I assume it's safe to say that all Warner Home Video [fi] distribution credits in IMDb from 2012 onwards should be reverted to Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland [fi].

OK. I will restore them myself. One by one.

In order to maximise the havoc you've done you have also delated all attributes. This way:

Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland [fi]  (2016) (Finland) (Blu-ray) (DVD) (3-disc edition)

Warner Home Video [fi]  (2016) (Finland) (Blu-ray)


No thank you so very very much for ruining years of painstaking research.

Hi Kari,

Apologies, we appreciate your years of research and it isn't right that your correct information has been incorrectly modified by another user. Thank you for starting to submit the edits. I've made the others for any distributor credit attached to Warner Home Video with an attribute of 2012 onwards, replacing it with your previous submission to Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland where applicable. I've also contacted the user responsible explaining the situation asking them not to revert those changes.

Regards,
Will

I would be very surprised if this has been the work of a single user or contributor. The only people able to convert nearly one thousand Warner Bros. Entertainment Finland [fi]s to Warner Home Video [fi]s overnight are the IMDb staff.

By the way, were these left alone or did they also fell victim of this Warner Home Video mania?

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment [nl] (Distributor)
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment [gb] (Distributor)
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment [dk] (Distributor)
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment [us] (Distributor)
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment [de] (Distributor)
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment [no] (Distributor)
