Multimedia, AV Piracy hurts the content industry. This has been the common line of thought in the piracy and copyright debate for years now, and even though study after study highlight that this is simply not the case - or at least, not as clear-cut a case - the content industry and its avid fans continue to spread this party line. Well, yet another study, this time from the Japanese government, has concluded that piracy actually increases anime DVD sales.

Piracy increases Anime DVD Sales?

Well, possibly.

For me as a Anime-Freak this seems to be somehow false. I like watching Azumangah Daioh or Dragonball. But that are long series - buying the DVD is too expensive; At least youre watch it once.

Dragonball ? No offence but how old are you 10 ?
They're probably referring to grown up anime, for people who can afford it, so you're out of the question.

This thread is prolly targetting mature readers, for people that are individual, starting a fight over personal interests is pretty childish, so you're probably not in the target audicence of OS News.
