I agree to that, but to expand and emphasize... It is the all overshadowing problem here is it not? Local country licensing/global citizens as far a media related content goes...
I will try to be direct:
1. DVD/Blu-Ray release worldwide, not one date in Asia, another in the US and a third in EU and even a fourth in Australia. The latter promotes piracy, think about this fictional scenario:
I have waited 16 months for this movie to be released so I can see the movie again on my TV. I feel you are leading me to the tracker to download the first available version yourself, even though I may have pre-ordered it, I will not receive that until it is released here, but it is out!!! It really should come as no surprise that this is only human behavior, not criminal... Why am I treated differently, it is not fair!!! - Next up is fair pricing, but I will not cover it here apart from a short comment below.
- Streaming - The corporate market is again even out of the picture left field versus otherwise law-abiding citizens, I would like to view this and you want to keep me out? I do not think myself unique to find even this unfair and so I will at least try... Do not work against human beings, work with them!
Personally and this is not fictional, I am all about music and I am way ahead of your empty shelves as I do download what is not on offer (soul reason: Your empty shelf). Then I buy if and when you do offer it or I find it at an auction when you fail. Still you call me a pirate?
According to your way of thinking I will have to wait until you choose to offer it or die without listening to the album again for all you care.
I am sorry, but my life is to short to even listen to your argument in this respect. I live for music, more so than IT, and if your shelf is full, you will have my money... Come on, I found obscure albums released on CD in South Korea not released online still? (what would it cost to make it available worldwide online??? Ordinary people do not schedule music searches like I do, still you complain about piracy?)
...If reasonably priced, and this is important... GREED only destroys loyalty and promotes piracy...
I am not for piracy any more even though I was scene once (that is really ever only about the challenge), and have legal licenses wherever possible, but when it is not, I am nothing but a human being - so please, do not lead me on.
