Blocking does not work...

Just ask China how well blocking websites is working.

If Hollywood where smart they would ignore P2P Piracy and go and push as much backing as possible behind Netflix and Similar services.

Content when you want it with no regional restrictions period would be the optimal way to do things., at a reasonable price all at one website. and that will solve your most evident piracy issues.

They would back Netflix if Netflix charged $25 a month and gave them half the money.

Amazon, Vudu and Itunes all stream and Hollywood has no issues with them because they charge PER MOVE. Anywhere from $3-$6, depending on quality( SD or HD ). Hollywood hasn't figured out many people think $6 is too much for a movie rental or $15 is to much for a DVD that might get watched once or twice and comes loaded with DRM.

That's too simple, they could never do that. No they're stuck in an old world business model and can't see past that.

Blockbuster is gone, so much for one of their largest sellers of product. Mom and Pop video stores are gone because of Blockbuster.. now what?

It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?

Pirate Bay.

Seriously though, video-on-demand is the future. Hollywood can get behind that and push something that makes them money (but not $3 a movie...) or they can keep filing lawsuits while millions of people ditch the paid avenues and just pirate because it's way more convenient than the paid options. It's not even about the money - it's just MORE CONVENIENT.
