That’s obvious, they spend the money they save on CDs on movies. :wink:

The three classes of pirate…

  1. I’d buy it if you let me have it sooner (which may be a LOT of movie pirates)
  2. I’d buy it if it was cheaper
  3. Buy? what!

Don’t forget number 4: I’d buy it if Icould actually play it (in other words, if it wasn’t for DRM).

I use Youtube to find bands and then buy a CD. But getting a CD isn’t always easy. Many bands make only a few CD for an album and rely mostly on MP3. Getting a CD from those is either impossible or ridiculously expensive (sort of a collector’s item). FLAC would be ok but I rarely find those for sale.

I have a few movies on DVD but they are mostly gifts. I rarely watch TV or movies.

IMHO,[B]5[/B] is the most applicable for pirates:
'I grab it,because I can…but I’d never pay any dime for it!And if I can’t find it,I’ll look for something else…:bigsmile:'
And that’s the big misconception from the multimedia industry…they calculate their ‘lost profit’ from the total amount of downloads,but 70% of the pirates would never buy it anyway…:disagree:
It’s time to do their homework again about the realistic financial damage…:bigsmile:

You forgot [B]6[/B] as an addition to number 5
I will download everything that I can - just for having it in my collection. I’d never watch the film/listen to the music but at least I could at any time I want to.
