The Solution to Piracy

by chromatic

I've been out of the music industry for a decade, but every so often I look into it again. The decision makers haven't improved since I stopped caring ten years ago, and they're not any smarter.

The current bugaboo isn't the cassette tape anymore, but piracy.

There's really an easy solution. If losses due to piracy are as high as industry organizations claim, the economics will eventually make this solution feasable.

Stop shipping physical products via the sea.

Now if I were in charge, I'd address the ease of digital distribution of music and the potential for copyright infringement, but apparently armed robbery at sea is more important.

Hi Great blog , My squidoo lens is also on same subject. I hope u dont mind if i share its details here :) Are DVD Decrypter Programs Hurting the Movie Industry?


You should really stop and consider this question carefully. First


there is a clear indication that DVD decrypter programs are used in a bad


manner such as making illegal copies of movies for sale. But are you


aware that there are actually legal situations that allow you to create


copies of the movies you own on DVD? With most movies costing close to


$20 each it is quite easy to see why people look for anything they can


to help reduce replacement costs.
