Hitchcock's Rebecca on DVD

What does it say about the motion picture industry that, in order to get Hitchcock's Rebecca on DVD, I have to buy a Korean copy from eBay? IMDB seems to say that the film was last released by some company named "The Criterion Collection". When you go to their web site, they say the title is "out of print."

How in the world can a classic like Rebecca be out of print? Fortunately most of Hitchcock's other classics seem to be available.
