Over the vocal protests of opponents, 22 European nations signed the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) on Thursday. A statement by the Japanese foreign ministry, which hosted the signing ceremony, indicated that the remaining EU member states were expected to sign the agreement "on the completion of respective domestic procedures." The United States, Canada, Japan, and several other nations signed the agreement in October.The move sparked protests in Europe. Thousands of Poles took to the streets in protest, and more than a dozen members of the Polish parliament donned Guy Fawkes masks to express their displeasure at the signing.
You could be right, i think the movie bosses are the patsy's too.They have to think theres billions in lost revenue to be throwing these resources at this.who's telling them this?maybe its them, I think there's some greedy opporunistic people who got some funding to look into this internet thing and liked it.Now the lost revenue figures been snowballing ever since, probably exceeds the US national debt by now.The thing is, if they get everything their way, just for arguments sake, then they wait for the sudden influx of revenue from cinemas, cd sales, online content delivery...the actual increase in revenue is somewhat less than what they all believe will be realised.
few people can afford to get everything they want, so they much choose their priorities.
people just won't buy but instead will learn to live without them, thus reducing the potential market of interested people while also creating a hostile population.
