Sony & Friends might be considering an eventual split so that Audio and Video in movies are shipped separately. Surely, THIS will stop all piracy! They could, say, ship movies only in giant tin packages, big circular things... maybe use some kind of celluloidal strip or something, and isolate the picture into separate, chopped up photo-like cells. String them together in mile-long pieces of that celluloidal medium.
Then, issue the audio on some vinyl-esque substance - a big flat disk, perhaps.
You'd need to buy all this equipment, including giant cavernous rooms that could seat 500 or 800 people at a time!
Simply sync up the video-playback of those celluloidal strips and the spinning audio disk - voila! THAT would surely stop all piracy! (Of course, that didn't help Mr. George Romero back in 1969 when he ordered a few extra prints for one of his first projects. Hmmm...)
Now... if only Sony would get their accounting systems to observe honest and verifiable arithmetic so their signed artists would be paid what THEY were owed-!
