“Itâ€™s simple: When content is stolen, the working men and women who labored to produce it â€” carpenters, truck drivers, accountants â€” are not fairly compensated for their work. And the small businesses that also benefit from film production â€” caterers, dry cleaners, and so many more â€” are robbed of that revenue,” said Dodd.
What does that have anything to do with piracy? Does he mean that because of piracy those people work for free? Or does it mean that if piracy weren’t there, then those people would get paid more? (yeah, for whoever believes that)
These people must be paid nontheless. So if piracy would be a problem, then the logical conclusion would be that the sum of all together would be a loss. It has absolutely nothing to with “not fairly compensated for their work”. If they aren’t fairly compensated for their work, then the pirates are the MPAA themselves for abusing them.
