haha of course its easier to pirate it, but how come we can't come up with some sort of technology to stop piracy? Seriously there has got to be some type of recognition software or something like that to force pirates from stealing.
the studios and the MPAA (motion picture assoc.) are doing everything in their power to strip us of all of our rights! Have you heard they are trying to lobby the FCC for control of our TV output systems? Meaning they want to be able to turn off/on the devices that we plug into our television set!
They won't stop until everything we watch is controlled by them and the money sits nicely in their pockets... A-wipes.
A lot of times consumers are mis-represented though, like is the case with Public Knowledge supposedly taking up for us... Their arguments against the MPAA's on-going negotiations with the FCC are convoluted and remind me of watching fahrenheit 9/11.
In some cases, the sellers are trying to give the consumer the best possible way to enjoy technology (of course while at the same time protecting themselves), but people are scared of the unknown and are nervous about being duped (somewhat understandably so). Research is really key to the whole process.
