The sound of inevitability

Consumers have an awareness of the scale of the problem and cost, but don't take onboard industry concerns or government messages. The researchers found that people did not equate downloading a game with the idea of shoplifting the disc from a shop. People are more accepting of it, even if they didn't engage it in themselves. They don't see it as a great problem on a social or economic level. They just don't see it as theft. They just see it as inevitable, particularly as new technologies become available.

Dr. Jo Bryce commented her findings in the study about people’s views on internet piracy, Fake Nation. Like most of us already knew, nobody shares the anti-pirates views on the matter. Michael Rawlinson, an ELSPA fat cat, came to the logical conclusion; if the people got the wrong ideas and views it’s up to the government to make them change their minds. Re-education camps anyone?

Here’s a gun, there’s your foot; stupidity rules, ok?
