Re: Hurt Locker P2P Lawsuit Comes to Canada

said by shepd:

Your best way to put companies this stupid in a hurt locker is to stop supporting them. Do not watch or do anything to give money to any of the films on this page:

»www.imdb.com/company/co0179337/

Make sure anyone involved knows that if they work for Voltage Pictures their movie will never be enjoyed by anyone and that they may/may not get paid when Voltage Pictures goes bankrupt from the lack of income.

Worst case scenario, I have no problem completely avoiding all copyright infringing consumption of video content. I still download stuff now, but I can't think of the last time I actually watched any of what I have. It just comes down automatically and I never bother looking at it.

There is far more than enough quality movies and video online that is legitimately free and produced by people who are both visionary in their craft and their business model. And I typically spend my time watching that stuff anyways. On top of being free, it's actually better content too.

If these dinosaur companies are that desperate to sue to the only people who actually watched their movie, then they can go screw themselves. I'll watch and support the content of people who embrace the future instead of trying to stop it.

Also go to vodo.net as it has lots of interesting recent open shows and movies that you can legally torrent.

Thank you for this link. I've bookmarked it.

You should explore all of archive.org there's some amazing movies and music on there... all in the public domain or in the creative commons.

I'm watching District 9 again, and I've come to realize something: Wikus's got it all wrong. If I were morphing into a 9 foot tall hyper-dextrous alien that can shoot lightning bolts and get high off cat food why would I ever want to become human again?
