    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?

    Middle of the road (recently under a lorry) looks to go with it.

    If you put her that way...

    GQ did manage to present her as an appetizing sex object..

    In Marley & Me she wasn't all that.

    Sure.

    If we got the same pricing here, I wouldn't think twice about paying.

    It would require the companies to stop playing police, and stop fucking with our legislation by lobbying politicians, though.

    Until then I'm done with going to the cinema, they can't have my money, and unless they stop being a threat to my rights, I'm wishing them all gone.


    EDit: This is probably the least crappy thread he's ever done, and you stole it. Good job, lulz.

    I feel it was some of my finest stealing.

    Wonder if he understands the irony. Probly, now that I've pointed it out.

    They don't do irony. Explained or knot.
