To Videpla, I personally do not download this crap off of the p2p networks, cause those are for the everyday masses, and I do agree that a good product is worth paying for. I have a dish, and I wait till that crap comes on to my dish before I watch it, in case I get bored and need some background noise. I really can not justify the price of hte movies today, due to as you mentioned the A list actors fees, and don’t forget all those damn speciual effects they have. Now I live in Canada, and I have a legal right to back up whatever I buy, if your RIAA and MPAA are going to came after me for those legal backups, on media that I paid a levy to that was collected by the CPCC, then I either want my levy back and we call it even, or an apology to everyone in Canada for the sheer abuse of their power for double dipping. As in France where they pay an enormous levy on tehir media, and personal copying is allowed. I to have a business that I run, and if people do not see the value of your work, then they obviously do not want to pay for it. I do tech work, and you have no idea how many people feel that 80 bux an hour is too much to spend on fixing their problems. So does this mean that all these people steal my work? No, those that do not see my value, will either get some kid to do the work, or will just buy another computer, hence stealing money from my pockets, and starving my family. I personally think that any organization that buys their own laws is as corrupt as can be, and should be brought in on raceteering charges, but you won’t see this happening in the god old USA cause it seems every damn politician is on teh take from these bastards. And one word of note, in Canada, the CPCC collected more money in levies last year, then the artists made in royalty payemnts. At something like 25 cents a blank disc going to the artists, think about it, in a 100 pack of blanks cd’s the artists make more money then they do for selling 2 cd’s of the same price. So if you think about it really, buying blanks, and “bootlegging” everything, actually makes the artists more money in the long run, with levies, then the RIAA does with their handicapped hand outs of 5 cents per CD. The other option of course, is to actually release movies that people want to see. Batman Begins was a GREAT start, but of course Hollywood failed and went downhill. So I gess it is back to foreign films that actually have a story, and grab my attention.
