Multimedia, AV ABC.net.au has published an article titled "The Case for Piracy". The writer shows how copyright has been hijacked by corporations and that publishers are their own worst enemies. "One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn't want to conform to the harsh new rules being set."

I couldn't agree with you more. I rarely ever watch any TV except for the weather and the news on occasion. However, my thought on this (what I do) if I am interested in a movie but know nothing about it, I will download it and watch it. If it isn't a total crap, I will purchase the blu-ray from the store. I think of it like this..... if I go to any retail store and buy a product that sucks, I can bring it back. However you can't return an open dvd/blu-ray so I just do it the opposite way.
