Adult Swim on piracy.

lol, goddamn adult swim

A recent report
claims film piracy
costs the economy
billion annually
We say this is
super misleading.
Film piracy may cost
the film industry 20 billion
but that money still goes
into the economy.
People will buy shoes
or comic books
or cataract surgery or
even baby formula
instead of spending that
money on movie tickets.
We say film piracy
feeds babies

I usually just waste the funds I save from piracy on the gaming or alcohol industry

I don't get why artists have such huge problems with piracy. they are greedy fucks, they earn what casual people earn in their lifetime by making one single album, then they bitch about the money they are losing in piracy

pic related, do I look like I want to pay this cunt?

I'm not particularly a fan of pirating, but people (namely the creators of the music/films in question) make a far bigger deal out of it than it actually is.

Let me open by saying I pirate everything. But I don't delude myself into thing it isn't stealing. If you want to pirate, go for it, but you are stealing. Is it a big theft? No. But stop trying to justify it. You're stealing because it's easy, there's almost no chance of getting caught, and you like free shit.

more to the point, piracy doesn't cost anyone anything because you can never prove that it was a lost sale. people that pirate would always have pirated it. if there was never a chance they would have ever paid for it it cant be a lost sale.

Well if you pirate something from some major artist (or film) its not going to effect them much but a lot of people pirate from indie developers too and thats whos actually getting hurt

I don't pirate films, I always buy it on Blu-ray or DVD. But what annoys me is when you buy a Blu-ray disc, the thing's so overencumbered with AACS, HDCP and other DRM protection you can't do anything with it. Also if you use a PC to watch them on you're always greeted with problems.   
   
You've got to update the AACS library all the time (which sometimes doesn't work because CyberLink sometimes need to patch their PowerDVD software - last time this took them a month). Sometimes I have HDCP issues on a monitor, when it is actually HDCP compliant, the software's just shit. It's against the law to screenshot a Blu-ray because Hollywood's scared you'll capture every frame of the film and re-assemble them in a video editor to copy the entire film. You can only output the Blu-ray on HDMI - Hollywood pressurised everyone to drop Analogue component video. Etcetera etcetera.   
   
Blu-ray's shit really, not sure why I buy them sometimes.   
   
TLDR: No
