Online Piracy Crackdown

February 7th, 2012 Posted in General

Personally I don’t condone online piracy but I’m not saying that I’ve not frequented download sites such as torrent sites.  Recently the talk of the internet was the Stop Online Piracy Act or SOPA that was due to be voted at the US Congress.  The act was killed after global outcry to it’s method and potential abuse.  I believe there should be an effective method to combat online piracy in general such as to provide items bound for piracy at a low cost price.  Movies sold as discounted dvds should be promoted and buyers be given incentives for buying genuine products. The recent crackdown on Megaupload should be seen as an eyeopener to all similar providers to start talking with publishers alike and decide on an appropriate pricing model that is competitive.  I like the idea of Apple’s App store.
