The ironic thing, the farmer likely get a similar amount for the crop either way. I don't think the farmer is getting a better price for theater corn.
Not to mention the fact of subsidies and ehtanol is keeping their prices high. So in fact, this is not hurting the corn farmer at all, but the theater owner who makes nary a profit from the movie but the selling of concessions.
As for the Piracy. How many people have watched a TV Show and saw a commercial and had to go out and buy that product?
Personally, I think NBC should be more concerned about putting on high quality shows that are intelligent and are not dumbed down to the lowest common denominator. The money they make off of Deal or No Deal makes up for any so called piracy they may encounter.
There is a reason that shows on FX, HBO, Sho, TNT, etc are winning awards.
