    Piracy is already a crime. This is where some people use recording devices to record films and transfer them to DVD. What they don't know is their actions are not only illegal, but also hurt the movie studios financially. In addition, this can also result in fewer movies being made in the future. Now you should be able to see theatre staff with night vision goggles. They're catching people who are recording movies. Remember movie studios and theatres are already combatting the problem head-on.

    As for the bootleg movies, the picture quality is not very good and the disk casing artwork is forged. Please don't assume piracy isn't a crime.

    Because it costs money to create films and when people steal the end result it means fewer more films can be made in the future. This is a business like any any other and why people think its efforts should be free is curious to anyone who earns a living in this sector.
