Notice how he didn’t go to China to say the very same thing? Sounds more like double speak when the biggest pirate is CHINA…
Motion Picture Association of America CEO Christopher Dodd has urged film professionals in India to band together with Hollywood to combat content theft.
“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.
MAFFIA are the biggest thieves of ripping off the very artist they represent it’s better to go independent then deal with these MAFFIA Clowns.
Is this all the MPAA can muster, to talk about piracy every frakking day? Is that the only thing on the menu about which to concern themselves? If piracy actually cost the Indian movie industry a billion a year then it would be on the brink of collapse. How do you even go about measuring the fiscal affect that piracy has on the industry? What standard do you use? Is this source of measurement accurate and precise? If not then it is not scientific and just more propaganda.
Chris Dodd was worthless when he was a Connecticut Senator and guess what? He still is worthless.
