Screw this article So, a company runs their business as they see fit; and because people think its too expensive, its ok to steal (edit: its technically copyright violation, as pointed out below. Either way, against the law)?
I live in Michigan, and right now, we are averaging the highest gas prices in the country (sans Hawaii). Maybe I should just steal some gas, because I think its too expensive.
If HBO saw profit in a standalone service, they would do it. People engaging in ILLEGAL ACTIVITY shouldnt sway a company to do things differently. Look at the previous article on this very newspage; Microsoft is being chastized for DRM and all the limitations, and Playstation is being applauded for doing the opposite.
I am fairly certain of one thing. People are going to steal regardless of how much something costs.

It will be either called "crime" or "revolution" by the side that wins and is granted with how the history will be written.
Us Americans shouldn't have stolen and then destroyed that tea, either.

So you use spotify, as done everyone else. No one has stolen music since the end of Napster.
I buy my food at the grocery store, therefore no one else steals from there.
I stated PEOPLE will steal, not EVERYONE will steal.
Also, movies on Netflix are pirated as much (though, we have no stastical data to back that up) because most movies that are stolen are a few weeks released in the theater. Netflix is usually 2+ older movies.
Try reading what i said again.
Also, no statistical backup? Try again.
Netflixs chief content officer says BitTorrent traffic drops as the Netflix traffic grows when the service launches in a territory
Also, you're an idiot if you compare stealing of physical things with non-material things. Studio isn't losing a sale because i stole a movie. If i wasn't going to buy the movie anyway, they lost nothing.
I found the key to success but somebody changed the lock.
