The referenced article is very well done and probably right on!
One additional thought that wasn't really mentioned:
Movie studios always throw around numbers supposedly representing lost revenue as a result of piracy. Those numbers always seem to assume that if a person downloaded, accepted as a gift, or created a copy of a movie, that they would have run out to buy it at retail if they had not been able to acquire it in one of those other manners. That, of course, is total nonsense. It is more likely that even if every movie title could only be acquired by purchasing it in some "legitimate" retail form, the increase in revenues to the studios would not offset what they waste due to their paranoia over and obsession with copy prevention and drm.
Here is a brief audio/video presentation discussing the number facbrication used by the riaa and mpaa to justify their activities and lobbying:http://www.pcworld.com/article/25193...cy_claims.html
The introduction of cinavia has actually stopped my expenditures for new blu-ray equipment and slowed down greatly my purchasing of titles, as I avoid cinavia infected titles as much as possible (rental only). The article seems to suggest I may not be the only one.
