Just checking, are you being serious?
Not really...pirating isn't helping matters though.
The movie and and music industry want it the same way it's always been, but times have changed. People have theaters in their homes and computers that can download a movie in minutes and an album in seconds. Both industries aren't willing to meet consumers halfway.... and that's fine, it's their choice what they want to do with their business. But, Fox is going to upset a lot more than an internet community of pirates by doing this. It's one thing to upset people who aren't buying crap anyway, but saying that people who are paying money for your product are thieving is going to have consequences. Maybe people who are buying will stop buying instead of people who were never buying in the first place just griping.
