Snippet: Film Industry Pirates

The movie industry is upset about online piracy. Yep, the people who charge 15 dollars for two sodas and a popcorn are accusing the internet of theft.


  1. That's so true. What a ripoff

    well not strictly true - its the cinemas that charge that much because thats how they make most of their profit. the ever increasing ticket fee goes mostly to the film companies.

    they are not the same thing. the film companies loan the big blockbusters to the cinemas but those cinemas also have to take lots of the shitty smaller films no one goes to see, so a cinema makes money from big films but is often stuck with empty screens with films they have to show in order to get the big films that make the money. the food and drink is the way to get the profits up lost by having to go through a hollywood monopoly.

    1. To be fair, the internet isn't the same thing as piracy websites, either. If they paint with a broad brush, I will too.

      I think theyre trying to eradicate the problem in any way they can, SOPA is like cutting your head of to cure your headache. i dont think it has any chance of getting in either. piracy isnt the problem they think it is. box office profits were at an all time high last year - do they think by removing piracy that would have been much higher?
