It completely destroyed large section of the music industry and did cut the revenues by a lot, yes making spotify free and having everything on youtube with adblockers make piracy irrelevant on that platform, but removed all revenues as well, people happily pay very little for having it on their mobile.Which just goes to show that they are blowing hot air. Always playing the victim and always overstating the actual impact of piracy on their bottom line. The fact remains that most pirates wouldn't turn into paying customers overnight if they put an end to piracy. The thing is, they don't have to end piracy, they have to offer a service that is better, and people will pay for it. mp3 sharing didn't die, it has become irrelevant, because of music streaming services that are affordable and more convenient. Music streaming works because they don't have exclusives, they don't try to fragment the market, they don't geolock content, therefore people happily pay for it.
Convenient for you is something absolutely subjective and I am not sure how relevant here, when someone say something is more convenient without adding for themselve in that type of conversation it imply more of an objective judgment.It is more convenient for me, not for the technically illiterate. But the technically illiterate won't pirate either way, so how is this relevant?
Thank you. Agreed mate! Taco remember Robinson crusoe. Nd also some other book about german uboat that got eventually sunk by american destroyer.
Left 2 years ago, don't miss it. Plus I am not going to support corporate activist garbage.Another year, another price hike by Netflix. This trend will probably continue.
I do wonder as well (could read people Sundance impression), I am not sure I ever saw a stronger/more powerful message against the hyper sexualisation of young girl that the movie Cutie.I'd be interested in the impression of someone who watched it before the controversy. Reading reviews from before the controversy, it sounds like it's supposed to make viewers squeamish. I guess it's kind of like making a movie about child soldiers. It's heart-wrenching, but that doesn't mean it's not a valid topic.
It was addressed to you.
You are talking a lot of fuzz about nothing trying to appears smart, however you are just proving my point that pirates will go to length of weird logic to justify taking something and not living up to their part of the deal.
You don't live up to your side of the arrangement it is wrong no matter how you try to picture a new world in you utopian fantasy
Full discloure: I did not read your full post as it It seems you are just repeating yourself: "We cant beat people getting killed so we are mights as well go murder them" idiotics. Again just proving my original point of extreme lenghts to justify a amoral act
