BlueWhiteDynamite Posted May 29, 2009 Share Posted May 29, 2009 I'll tell you what grinds my gears.... Junk reports like this http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8073068.stm They state the economy is losing tens of billions of pounds on illegal downloads. Because thats the value of the amount of downloaded illegal music/video/games etc. What utter junk. People who download these files wouldnt usually pay for them if they had to. People who download the top 40 every week are hardly going to buy every single CD/mp3, its the same for films. People who want to go to the cinema go and people who want to buy a CD do. Also how can the economy be losing this money, yes the industry might be losing a small percentage of this, but if joe blogs decides to download the new black eyed peas album illegally, chances are he'd spend that money on something else within a few days anyway. What grinds yours ? Over to you Tom Tucker Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
