I say let them, do what they want to do...then let the black market take over the market in all media related items, from alt news stations (Alex jones - youtube & RTN) to films>music>apps>software>etc
Bring on PTB I say let the greedy cats suffer from their own mis-management (lack of knowledge of their sales market).
If the so called film/porn/music corp are shouting out loud now, what going to happen when this change comes in... shout even louder? many of us will just not listen to there silly points or over priced markets any more. There only so much you charge for any item in this day of age, DVD's CD's etc all over priced now as is - not really helping any body now is it by putting more % on the price is there.
Not to even think about the job losses in these off shore warehouses, when the company relocates to another tax-free haven...ain't they thought of this yet? More seasonal tourist jobs 6 months a year the other 6mths jobless? One wonders where they get these idoit's that call them "good ideas"
