A little piracy

I’m not sure I like this essay on a little piracy being good, but it’s not all wrong. We have never, and likely never will, get 100% enforcement on anything. What we want are limits to prevent blatant piracy, and large amount of damage.

Have pirated music and movies cost content creators money? Without a doubt? Millions? Maybe. Hundreds of millions? I doubt it.

What I think is the bigger problem for content creators (publishers, distributors, creators, actors, etc.) is the fact that their businesses are holding on to old models of their industry without trying to innovate.
