pirating is a crime, yes it is. But is this really a bad crime? Most people use a copy or download a movie in fact that they do not have the money to purchase this expensive content. Companies like Sony have to think more with the brain of customers. If the want that people buy it, they have to make it more attratcive.
The told us how great DVD was. But the fact was, one kid hand and the DVD was history (damaged): They told us that Blu-ray is great but the experience shows that it also do not life long in the hands of a childen. Streaming? In my area you cannot watch a video stream well, to slow connections. So what to do? They told us years long how bad we all are because we copied DVD to mobile to watch it there. And now? You can get a BD with Digital Copy. But what is the fuck digital copy? Just for Windows Media Player or iTunes. Haha.
Why in hell they do not develop a small box with a big hard drive? Insert the Blu-ray and it will make an autimaically copy of the movie to it. Without any copyright violation. Sell this for cheap price like Apple TV or whatever. Thisi is sthe solution and not Cinavia, AAC and all the protections that will be cracked and hacked. They want that we play fair but special Sony do not play fair. They invest millions into new, no working protections.. ON DVD they make DVD disks with just 50% of the storage capabilities to have place for Accros and bad sectors. Why not invest all this money into a solution that work for all? That removes the problems, makes content cheaper.
I think iif this problem is solved, copy products and pirated content is also history.
BTW: 22000 audio files? He downloaded all this content for him? Sounds more like a professional.
