Re: People still watch TV?
said by dgoner:For every major star, their are hundreds, thousands even, of people who take regular jobs to write, create and maintain their work. The only one making sensations about this is a person who looks at the top 1% and ignores the rest of the people; you. said by Metatron2008:
Bullshit. And if by some chance all of that is correct, then I assume you don't mind if other people steal your work and never pay for it, putting you on the street?
You are either lying or a fool who doesn't understand how life works.
Anybody who is self employed and has even AN IDEA of how bills work wouldn't be messing around with putting bread on the table. Esp. not in this economy.
Btw, it's 'prove', not proof. Not to mention the countless other spelling errors. What software do you make by chance?
modifications for games, Stuff on /b/ in your parents basement? Because a person with your ability to type wouldn't be able to sell anything reasonable.
So Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise have been thrown out on the street? Why didn't someone tell me such horrible atrocity was going on. KILL THE INTERNET NOW!
Let's face it this is about huge corporations trying to protect an ever GROWING empire. This has nothing to do with people being thrown out onto the street because they can't get paid. Sensationalism to the extreme on the part of the MPAA, RIAA, and all who sympathise with them.
Show some statistics of how this industry is in the state of contraction. Show some statistics as to how this industry is not still growing despite material being pirated. Put your money where your mouth is before you start spewing the 'party line' out of your mouth. This link shows data up to 2008. The industry as a whole is growing »www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=w···T79tuaLg So tell me again are people attached to this industry really being thrown onto the street? Bullshit show me your proof!
If you haven't been paying attention to the economy, then there is no point talking to you. Most of that money goes to CEOs.
LOL yep that is what I thought (no data). Typical banter of a MPAA / RIAA shill. Let me let you in on a little secret... The CEO's always make the money regardless of the economy. The other little secret is that the entertainment industry is almost recession proof. As long as American's are still breathing they will always be looking for ways to be entertained. You'll have to try a lot harder to convince people that don't have their head up their tootsie that people are being pushed to the street, unable to make a buck in the entertainment industry.
The CEOs never used to be like this. The CEOs of today are just like you. They take what they want and have no care for anyone else.
You are looking the wrong way. I'm not a thief, or a shill, for any of your selfish sides. I have morales.
You may not realize this, but not everything is as polarized as you believe. I hate both you and the riaa.
