Multimedia, AV 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."

The way our media formats change, 100 years from now it may be impossible to view a DVD or Blu Ray from today, or listen to a music CD, let alone copy and distribute.

Correct - which is why we should be allowed to copy and format-shift them today so that this content will survive the ever-increasing copyright term extensions.
