Downloading 'illegally' GENERATES revenue

I did a mini survey about 2 years ago which proved this and I would like the RIAA and MPAA or any other authority to also exercise this same survey.

Personally, whilst having watched numerous movies that I have not paid to see, many of these I would not have gone to watch at the cinema anyway (no loss of revenue,) and the ones I did enjoy I BOUGHT.  In the past 2 years I have PAID FOR over 200 DVDs; almost all because I had chance to preview them first.

Ask these 2 questions and decide whether p2p is good or bad...

1. From the CDs / DVDs you have PAID FOR, how many are because you had the opportunity to preview the material first?

2. From the CDs / DVDs you have 'PIRATED', if you were unable to download them, how many would you have actually bought?

My survey showed that a HUGE proportion of peoples’ collections were as a result of downloading and that the pirated material they would have paid for was significantly lower, and in many cases zero.

Conclusion: 'piracy' pays, and the RIAA and MPAA etc should be supporting p2p not opposing it!!

Please note: from the top 20 ALL TIME grossing international BOX OFFICE takings (not even DVD sales,) 15 are since we have been able to download efficiently.

At least when I disagree with someone I tell them why. The profanity is merely to please the crowd.

Blackwolf--the quesiton here is who did you give htis survey to? how many people were surveyed? "100% of the people I surveyed believe that drusg shoudl be legalized!" What we dont' know is that your survey was made entirely of drug users. The same thing may well be happening here.

@ Lysander ... i am not asking OPIONS of the people who prefer to partake in an activity, i gathered facts from the very people this survey could have damaged.  however, i wouldn't worry yourself about things like this - stick to your drugs

 2 yr old survey thats missinformed info
 by no one realy important to worry about tbh

no true facts or true stats to work from   who did you ask to survey users of mx or a public poll ?

public poll no web site to even look at to even say yes or no
 as in mx i for 1 did ny off some sorts  take part

so before this goes into a flame war  if you going to do a survey  stick to TRUE FACT AND STATS
 with a true number off users /public vote and you SHOW how you come about theres facts
other wise its just anther riaa/mpaa propaganda mouth peace

Hm, first post in the thread was 2005, and the 'survey' 2 years before that...

A lil outdated by now, methinks...

7 years, Governments dont last that long. Wars dont last that long!

What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
