Infographic: How Holllywood is Using Piracy Against Us

Title section of the Hypocrisy in Hollywood infographicOkay, lets make this clear right from the start: I do not like piracy.  I don’t do it and I don’t support it.  But don’t worry, I’m not stepping up on a soap box.  The soap box is over in the corner and I don’t plan on taking any steps toward it.

My basic feeling on the matter is this: if you want something, you should pay for it.

That said, Hollywood has been woefully inept at trying to battle piracy in the modern age.  They have fragmented availability of content and made increasingly difficult on consumers.  The most annoying of which is how they treat their paying customers like thieves.  You don’t need to put anti-piracy commercials on a disk.  Because I bought that disk.  If I had pirated it, I wouldn’t be seeing that warning.  So yeah, that sucks.

You know what?  Here’s an infographic that might make things more concise than if I try to explain it all.
