Its absolutely stupid that these companies are attacking pirates. You know I've been wanting to see a movie for a while now, and actually have several gift cards to movie theaters and simply haven't seen anything I want to spend money on. I have money to buy a movie, but its all ridiculous prices for a majority of them.

I don't pirate movies. However look at the benefits of it. You get past the DRM crap entirely. You don't see 5 "we think you stole this" screens you can't skip, you can transfer it to any device you want as many times as you want, you don't need accounts to download it, and can simply enjoy the movie. Now go spend 20 to 30 dollars on that same movie.... you get the screens, are limited to what you copy it to and how many times, its constantly checking to make sure its legit, etc....

You are treated like a thief when you are legit, so why not be the thief? Thats just one of the many reasons I find it stupid.
