Right on Adam! I talked about this before. The movie industry only needs to look at the recording industry to see what happens when you confuse piracy with potential customers. If they want to use lawyers to help them try to close the pandora’s box that’s already wide open, they’ll lose a lot, and maybe more, potential revenue than if they embraced technology and offered downloadable movies.
I’d pay $5-10 for the luxury of downloading a movie to watch on my PC, and I’d probably do it once a week or so. That’s $250-500 that I’d personally be willing to spend annually for these movies, and I’m sure many others would too.
Alternatively, the movie industry can keep doing what it normally does, and get the army of lawyers out after the college kids…
Which seems like the best option?
