    would you still steal them from the BT internets?

    (In China a few years back the big movie conglomerates (WB, Universal, and co) tried to compete with the widespread piracy that wasn't even hidden - shops selling copied DVD's with up to 8 films on them with watchable quality for about $1 or so - by lowering their retail DVD prices dramatically to something like $4 or $3.50, and even though more people started purchasing said material, the piracy continued.)

    Still and all, if they decided to lower their prices in order to seriously attempt to oppose the competition, as opposed to make use of MPAA and the rest of their arsenal to bully us into submission, would you think twice about your home-made, freely-obtained marvels?

    Hell yes, the quality of films recently (last 5-10 years) have become horrible. Everything seesm to be a remake of an old film or a film based on cartoons/comics. Of course there are exceptions (Doubt, No Country), but for the most part this is true. Plus people in theatres are rude and quite loud.

    Would definitely go to theaters more often

    I'm too lazy to go and buy it. Downloading is easier

    I don't really support piracy. I just do it because I am young (and a student) and don't have the money to buy originals. I still go to cinemas to watch most of the new (and good) flicks.

    I will definitely buy original DVDs. Nothing is better than an untouched and untampered dual layer movie DVD. I also don't have the bandwidth to download full DVDs. I download only DVDRiPs.

    Well if that happened I would stop using my general trackers and keep my specialised trackers.
    Back after going through many ordeals of paying for my internet.
