I will start paying when video on demand will be available at a reasonable price Vs TV - Cable / satellite providers. By available, I mean all the TV shows and movies I want, when I want it and without commercials. I am a subscriber of Netflix. The service is good, but the content is old. So I need P2P to get the latest stuff....

I am from the Middle East. I have no legal means to obtain the latest TV shows and movies in a timely manner, and the only alternative I have is file-sharing. I am also willing to pay for the content I produce, however only if there is a way in the future to pay the artists only and exclusively. I refuse to pay distributors and...

The morality of file sharing is complicated and impossible for all to agree on, but I live by the ethos that you support creators of content you enjoy, but content creators need to realise we live in an age where you cannot force people to pay, DRM does not work. It is a natural instinct for humans to share what they have with ...

Something inherently not wrong about sharing something that is endlessly duplicate-able. If the market has to crash so content and information to be free, then so be it. Maybe that will make the art of different mediums better and more accessible to the artists, rather then the bussinessmen.

I think that a lot of people will be happy to pay for commercial services if the price is reasonable and the content can be streamed. Currently this only seems to be the case in the US, so the rest of the world have to be confined to using torrents.

I think when governments understand people dont just share because they dont want to pay for content, but rather do so to try out content they DO want to pay for in the end, the gap that exists now can be bridged. That also must include the respect for copyright property. In other words, if someone downloads a copyrighted work a...

With content with no merit continuing to be pumped through TV, radio and the cinemas, filesharing is the only way to obtain quality content. Till the mainstream content creators understand this, filesharing will continue to expand as people become sick of being force fed crap again and again.

... enjoy online purchasing from music shops like iTunes, Amazons Kindle store for books, and game stores like Steam. I would like to be able to purchase and acces content directly online regardless of where I am in the world. I am hoping the future will lead to being able to watch new programming streamed online by subscription....
