    hollywood still fighting the inevitable instead of accepting reality and adapting. sounds like the same strategy we've been applying on offense with similar results.

    Rich conservatives are the worst thieves out there.

    Meanwhile, their executives have zero discretion and they want the media to stop reporting on the hacking of company records and emails.

    Did they defend Donald Sterling after he got exposed?

    I like a big money effects driven blockbusters every now and again. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is an example of a good one. The piracy costs to the studios are significant . They spend 200 million to make a movie, and another 200 million to market it only to lose a sizable chunk of the foreign box office and a sliver of the domestic box office to piracy. They are not going to continue pumping 400 million into a productions. They can't afford to take the hit, and the shareholders won't allow it at some point. They have to fight piracy, and if you want to see pop corn action flicks with lots of explosions you should want them to fight it.
