I watch bucket loads of movies and series online, often trough P2P, during or just after they are broadcasted on tele.
I watch bucket loads of new release movies online, often going to see a movie in cinema when I liked it. I don't go and see movies I don't like or
that are utter crap(like 99.9% of all movies are these days). Next to that, I'm an Aspie (Aspergers Syndrome) I have real and severe problems going
to crowded places, which new release movie showings always are.
I play at least 100 PC games in the adventure, sci-fi, rpg, FPS and RTS genres per year, buy each and every one I enjoyed (unfortunately for the
industries, my standards seem to be way above theirs and I only turn out to buy 5% of all the games I play a year)
I download old and new release music and buy the songs legally on iTunes when my media player shows I listen to them often, I NEVER buy CD's or
albums, unless they are 60-70-80-90's albums, which I know are quality and fully worth it, because these days, by design, Albums contain 2 to max 3
good songs, with the rest of the average 13 songs per album being utter crap or rehashed junk.
I pay for whats worth my money, after testing, listening, viewing, sampling it. Imho, this is any and every consumers right and every publishers duty
to make available.
There's laws against false advertisement, miss representation and the sorts, but yet the publishers can shove utter # down our throats without
consequences from government, they deliberately and contiously design their products to be low quality with just enough PR elements to spin their
products as the next big thing.
So the power falls to the Internet, to the People, because the laws aren't obeyed and enforced.
You try to sell us #, we don't pay, you sell us quality goods, we're happy to pay, thats the way its supposed to be.
