Hollywood Doesn’t Care About The Bootlegger’s Struggle!
Unfortunately if you’re even remotely technologically literate, this is a sad day for you. Because Voltage Pictures has decided to sue 5,000 unidentified BitTorrent users. Which means they’re going to try to subpoena the ISP’s for the identity of people who have downloaded movies. Which means if you downloaded The Hurt Locker just to see if it kinda sucked or if it was more watchable than Avatar [you] will have to pay the price. [Manolith]
That’s right! Recession or not, these folks demand your hard-earned money if you want to view their movies. Hell, they may start sending the feds to barbershops and drop-kicking your local DVD man! Is it really that big of a deal, though? Do you think people should really have legal action taken against them just for the free download of a movie or song?
While you decide on how right or wrong these procedures are, you’d be wise to lay low on the downloads. A fat Hollywood lawsuit may leave you with just enough funds to survive off of weekly Taco Bell Grande meals and free cups of water—it doesn’t seem worth it just to see Madea’s Trip to The Gynecologist.
