It seems that if you get faster speeds from your ISP, Hollywood is out to demonise you http://torrentfreak.com/movie-studios-fear-piracy-surge-due-google-fiber-141229/
About a third of these pirates said they would download or stream more with Google Fiber. Perhaps even more worrying for Hollywood, about a quarter of the non-pirates said they would start doing so if Google comes to town.
The most interesting part, however, is that the research tries to estimate the studio’s extra piracy losses that Google Fiber could create across the nation.
Drawing on an MPAA formula that counts all pirated views as losses the report notes that it may cost Hollywood over a billion dollars per year. That’s a rather impressive increase of 58% compared to current piracy levels.
What’s most striking from the above approach is the way the studios frame Google Fiber as a piracy threat, instead of looking at the opportunities it offers.
For example, the same report also concludes that 39% of the respondents would use paid streaming subscription services more, while 34% would rent and purchase more online video. Yet, there is no mention of the potential extra revenue that will bring in.
Help!! The sky is falling in ...again
It seems that the drama in Hollywood is not confined to those acting in its overpriced productions, as always we have to ask the same question of the so called creative industries that leech off the real creative folks, how much profit is enough ??
