Stealing and Piracy of Movies is Good for Movie Studios
One of the world’s most successful venture capitalists and two music big-shots have gotten behind piracy. Now, as odd as it might sound, there’s (a little bit of) proof that piracy may actually help movie studios make money.
Despite Fred Wilson, Neil Young, and Elvis Costello all coming out in favor of media piracy, stealing movies and music is still . . . well . . . stealing. And forget legal nuances distinguishing copying from theft; if you take something from someone else without paying for it and you know you were supposed to pay, you’re stealing.
