Video raises a good point regarding piracy in the film industry, particularly for independents. While I generally do not condone piracy in many cases, I do participate in it for one main reason: I don't make enough money to actually afford to see or buy the games/movies/music I don't know if I like yet. I download the stuff, and if I am going to get more than 20 minutes worth of enjoyment out of it, you had damn well better believe I'll go out and buy it (In a nod towards Krim, I paid for Marble Blast Ultra on Live and don't even have a 360
). At the same time, those who pirate this media for their own profit or just because they don't want
to spend money on something that they can easily afford annoy the hell out of me... though in the case with music now, unless it's an indie label, I'll pirate the music and buy the (ridiculously overpriced) shirt, and go to the concert, since the real artists will actually see more than a few pennies off of that.
