...m sceptical on whether effective laws will be brought in for the same reasons that the video and tape players were not outlawed. Big business owns ISPs as they do film studios-it is not in their interest to limit the use of ISPs, and therefore I doubt the political will is there, though the rhetoric is. I think that the market w...

I think that the market might want to innovate, and adapt to the way people behave. A lot of people dont really mind paying for something, but dont want to leave their computer. Things like Steam and the iTunes store will eventually dominate the gaming and film markets. Most people in Holland dont really care about the fact that...

If it wasnt for file sharing, I wouldnt be able to watch movies. In the country I live in, I cannot go to the cinema/movies to see an American film or other films in the English language. Im pretty thankful for these sites.

Theres been huge legal cases in Australia aiming to get ISPs to monitor the internet usage of their customers to eliminate file sharing, however it was just recently thrown out by the courts.

...ale. If the pirate bays Top 100 is anything to go by, TV Shows are the most popular download. Followed by Films and Music. In the future, IMO, larger companies, Film and Music mainly, will give away their products for free with massive advertising schemes to quench their insatiable thirst for money. The way this world is run ...

File-sharing is a great way to find unknown topics of interest in music or film for free leading to official, tax-paid shopping, I think. So whats the problem? Succesful artists make enough money, anyway. Any attention will increase sales.
