Re: They didn't lose me

I think copyright law should be modified so that if one cannot get access to material via local(with in 30mi), Amazon(or similar internet site) or streamed legal methods then it is no longer wrong to torrent it.

in short of a movie company or music company takes something out of print and you cant get it from a legit streaming service it should no longer be illegal to download it since the IP owner failed in their portion of their ownership of the IP as they failed to make it available.

I don't know how many piracy suits would've fallen into this category. Usually the MPAA lawsuit factory program targets mainstream Hollywood productions. I have yet to see of any piracy claims for out-of-region and/or out-of-production movies.

I personally feel you're right though. I try and buy media I feel is worthwhile for purchase. However, if local stores, Amazon, Google, and iTunes/Zune/etc. come up empty...then I look through the "questionable" channels instead.
