I find it interesting that anonymous can screw with the government so badly but when it comes to Los Zetas they so easily bluster then back down.
Los Zetas has the ability to find people, torture , and kill them (after killing their families) and are not people to be messed with. The federal government has done through the CIA the same thing on a more international scale and with greater resources. I am wondering why anonymous is still around.

If you are not willing to pay to see it, then why should you get to see it? That's how things work, people spend money to create things, with the assumption that their product will be appealing enough to enough people that they can recoup their costs and make enough money beyond that to fund the creation of more things. If you have enough people just taking it, then not only is their no incentive to continue creating, their is no capital to create anything if they wanted to.

The government are tackling Piracy in completely the wrong way. What they should be doing is looking at why people illigally download material and what the industry could do to stop it happening. Obviously the answer is easy but it will mean not as much profit which is why the government will never do this. To stop people copying content, make it available at a fair price that everybody can afford and get with the times and release it to internet at the same time as the Cinemas. If people want to watch it in a cinema they are free to do so but stopping people watching it at home on release only makes them download.
If a film was say $1.99 for a streamed watch then I am sure that most piraters would opt to pay as it wouldn't be worth the hassel for that price.
The industry needs to evolve with the modern age and stop thinking it can live in the past and prosecute anybody that does not choose to live in the past with them.
