Internet & Networking Via TorrentFreak: "Entertainment industry lobby groups often describe file-sharers as thieves who refuse to pay for any type of digital content. But not everyone agrees with this view. Swedish telecom giant Ericsson sees copyright abuse as the underlying cause of the piracy problem. In a brilliant article, Rene Summer, Director of Government and Industry Relations at Ericsson, explains how copyright holders themselves actually breed pirates by clinging to outdated business methods." No faeces, Sherlock.

If they get even 10% of those pirates, then they are golden. Hell! They'll get me if they start selling content in my country and not displaying "We can't sell in your country..."

I've bought a lot of digital media while travelling to UK and US. Yet when I'm at home, I resort to torrents - because of lack of service or poor quality of service(at best).

There is this paradox - they treat me and my countrymen as thieves, so most of us resort to "stealing". Even those that will pay for a good service.
