Is It Really Piracy That’s The Problem?

Dirty Harry wonders about the effect of piracy on the entertainment industry. He starts off talking about the nose-dive of music sales, then unleashes this gem:
So, why write about this on a film website? Because piracy is rampant and everywhere. For a mere five dollars, any soon-to-be released movie can be purchased as a bootleg from an illegal alien in the Circuit City parking lot two miles from my house. Or, The Hot Little Number I Call Mrs. Harry can bring it home from work for the same price. But I don’t buy them because the quality sucks. Not the bootleg quality — the movie itself. I’m not wasting five dollars on another lousy Hollywood movie.
Nice one, DH.
