Not in favor of stupid laws but...

Don't we all look at our paychecks and wonder what we could do with the money that's removed to pay for government? Isn't it human nature for Hollywood to look at the $10.7B and wonder if it would be $10.8B without piracy?

And the numbers quoted here are for THEATER showings & not the DVD and streaming sales and cable VOD that make up most of the revenue for the studios. It is that revenue that covers costs and makes a movie profitable - not theater income.
