Maybe you miss the point here; the punishment does fit the crime! The penalties for Copyright breach are way out of proportion. The MPAA and the RIAA and the like don’t seem to have to prove any loss, just an inflated prediction of what their loss would have been if they had been able to sell the same number of Pirated Movies to the same customers at grossly inflated prices! The penalties they,(MPAA etc.) they would like, are draconian and far beyond community expectation. This case just goes to prove all the Copyright warnings on the front of DVD (easily removed by 'Pirates" by the way) do nothing to prove their case to the Populace, they would be more convinced if the selling price reflected a true, 'cost + mark-up", price that was more in line with commercial reality rather than 'charging what the market will bear", knowing their goods are overpriced and trying to beat their customers with a stick to buy them! The production cost of a DVD movie (including jacket & case) are now well under one dollar each, and in most case the movie box-office take has well exceed it’s production cost! It is time for to get some sanity into the argument, if Millions are spent enticing people to watch a movie and then put it beyond their reach, as soon as someone comes along who can fulfill that need at a price they can afford you can hardly blame them for taking up the offer!
