My post was meant to explain that if prosecution by the movie companies has to be on an individual basis, then it may be more worthwhile for them to use scare tactics. They can only prosecute a small percentage of the total number of p2p file sharers. Not the ideal situation for them. Thus, the advent of cinavia and other copyright protections.
I am sure that they are aware of VPNs and other torrent privacy techniques. This only compounds the aggravation for them.
If you invented a product and had a copyright patent would you be angry that a person or company was infringing upon your copyright protections.
I do think that dvds should be allowed to be copied for personal use, but how do you enforce that when the enforcement techniques are so weak and there are so many violators.
The only solution would be to give a lifetime waranty on the dvd, which poses a whole new set of problems.
