Why we Rat....

There are a few legit reasons for Ratting. (pirating)
Metalica will be my reference for this.One reason is Most people know nothing about a group (Just roll with me here) so they Download a CD or Discography. 80% of those people will go out and buy their music and move on. while others Move on because "they aren't my style" and The group would not have made money off them anyway.Thus Pirating is Advertising for the bands W/O costing them any real money.

Another reason is simply because the group (linkin park) hasn't released ANYTHING new and just keep re-releasing or re-dubbing the same old music in a "Best of" sound track. Well guess what happens if you don't keep releasing new things? people won't buy it because they can get the dman thing off BT torrent instead. Thus Pirating forces the Industry to be productive. (I mean do we really need "Beauty and the Beast 3D?" Not really and they should know better.

Then there is Ratting to make sure it's worth watching. Cause lets face it X-men Wolverine should not have made it to DVD. it was just bad and We shouldn't have paid $40 for it. However the Ironman series is awesome and after watching the Cam version most of us went and got it. Thus Pirating Supports the industry by voting. If it's good we'll buy it if it isn't we'll just delete it. again Date movie should never have happened. Plus we love some of the DVD extras. :3

We need to show industry why we rat and tell the world how to fix it. Sure there is a small % of people who do it just for the lols but the rest of us do it because we have little or no other choice. :/

I currently have 69.1GB of music downloaded, for two reasons, I dont usually have any money to my name, and Im a music lover & collector. I also do it to discover more about artists ive heard little of and find out if I like it or not.

P2P Torrents arent technically illegal, because its file sharing, you can do the same thing on skype or AIM, only on a big scale.
The PIPA and SOPA bills should be more than revoked, they should be set on fire and shoved down the throats of the people responsible for this infringment on peoples rights!....sorry if that was harsh, it need be said.

turning SOPA/PIPA into resin-hardened confetti-knives and sticking the people responsible for SOPA/PIPA in blower-tanks, turning the tanks on and watching the people die the death of a thousand cuts inflicted by their own bill. that is harsh

That is the issue It is illegal. Even owning a DVD backup program violates ALL of the copyright laws. even if you are just using it to back up in case your stuff gets robbed.

Under Copyright laws file sharing violates MANY international Treaties as well as a few dozen Patent laws. thus they are trying to stop it. Megaupload was the first to fall. even if 80% of it's files were legal it doesn't matter.

we are all guilty of doing it, no matter how much they try to stop it, instead of stopping us from doing it, they should omit their stubborn treaties and laws and re-discuss those.

with out input from the internet that would be imposable. Remember MOST people making these laws do not / have not used the internet. it's like Making laws for tigers because you heard they were dogs.

Mostly people pirate because it's easier.

Exactly. It's so hard/difficult to find the materials we want legally SO we take the 3rd option.

It's not difficult, it's just a pain in the arse. Go to Amazon > Sign Up > Enter Credit Card Details > Buy DVD > Wait for it in the post > Lose interest.

Compare with iTunes. Buy iPod > Open iTunes > Sign up w/ card details > Music, films and TV on demand to buy or (in the case of visual media,) rent.

What we need is an iPod. Not a video iPod but something which will make us want to buy films in the same way. Maybe like a Media Headset which shows movies as big as your eyes can cope with or something.

But we cant get Movies that have fallen to the way side like Mystery Science Theater 3000 or all of Jay Leno (as an example) off Amazon nor iTunes and what would you do if say itunes were to jack it's prices like Netflix did?

They are the strongest and most powerful Media hosting company on the net. Would you be willing to pay $5 a song because the field is too small? probably not.

what if say itunes decided they were going to pull Firefly because they didn't like the content EVEN though they are the only ones who have the Copyright?

as for the Ipod Hud it's only $200

Well see that's my point. Netflix and such have a limited library of movies available to 'watch now.' You need a service with virtually every movie ever made available for instant download.

Another good way to combat piracy would be to release films on disk sooner than they do now. People pirate films they enjoy, for the most part, and wanna watch again. But who's going to pay Cinema prices to do that? £20 a time and it's just ridiculous money, so people pirate it.

indeed going to the movies costs about $120 for a family of 4 Tickets are about $20 to $25 plus snacks and drink. I liked my old cable Pay-per-view with the Simil-release of their movies. It came out on dvd got $15-$20 and $5 to rent from home on the same day. It was nice... now we're lucky to find something from within this decade. :/

(in movie guys voice) "In a world were people cant find jobs they expect us to pay so much to watch 'Not another teen horror flick 3?' Come on we're broke bitch."
