That’s how stupid the debate became!
[i]"NBC/Universal general counsel Rick Cotton suggests that society wastes entirely too much money policing crimes like burglary, fraud, and bank-robbing, when it should be doing something about piracy instead.
“Our law enforcement resources are seriously misaligned,” Cotton said. “If you add up all the various kinds of property crimes in this country, everything from theft, to fraud, to burglary, bank-robbing, all of it, it costs the country $16 billion a year. But intellectual property crime runs to hundreds of billions [of dollars] a year.”"[/i]
Anyone here actually uses P2P to sample new albums and only buys the ones they like? I sure do.
The question I’m asking is this: Do people prefer to pirate because music/movies/etc are so mediocre nowadays? In which case, isn’t free market supposed to fix the issue? Or do you think teenagers downloading the latest Pirates of Carribean should be jailed? Thoughts?
