People who illegally download movies also love going to the cinema and do not mind paying to watch films, research has shown.Those who illegally download movies are more likely to be wealthier and less worried about being caught than their music counterparts, concluded the study, thought to be the first to examine the differences between movie and music pirates.Dr Joe Cox, one of the University of Portsmouth economists involved in the study, said: "It is interesting to see that people who illegally download large quantities of movie files continue to pay for legal movie consumption to a far greater extent than music downloaders."Movie pirates are also more likely to cut down their piracy if they feel they are harming the industry compared with people who illegally download music, according to Cox and fellow Portsmouth University economist Professor Alan Collins.
A splendid Idea Stripes Unfortunately someone has to pay for the b grade material, I like remixes of those tracks I enjoy, you cant get too much of a good thing
Nice to see you in a different topic Fuller, I do allow myself a few small breaks to post up news and comment on topics of general interest, if you have been following my posts you would already have noticed they have at times asked for help to keep the site ticking over so I could do further client related work but when I see little news and activity I have a duty to try to reverse that trend, I think you already know this and just wish to be rude, thats a great shame but as I mentioned I dont have to be rude in turn, Thanks for your clear support of the work I do here anyway and I shall get on with some of the documentation I promised, its about 3/4 along and I hope you take the time to read through it for errors when I make it available as I like to think we are all in this as a team.
I remember when folks where paying for 128k I might have never been any the wiser had I not discovered WinMX and the various bitrates on offer that make a lot of difference to the depth of the "sound".I dont mind compressed formats but I suppose its a bit like jpeg versus png, if you can produce a product in a lossless format then why not do so ?
