Hollywood sure does like to bitch about copyright violations. On the one hand, I see their point, because no matter what anyone tries to tell you, illegally downloading movies online is stealing. Spin it anyway you like, but at the end of the day, piracy is no different than shoplifting.
But on the other hand, I just don’t give a damn. That’s not to say I condone piracy, but it’s hard for me to get worked up about movie studios losing money. When it comes to things I’m supposed to care about, the damage caused by movie piracy ranks just above my carbon footprint, and just below factory farms. And this infographic explaining the roots of the Hollywood system isn’t helping matters. Sure, there are worse things in this world than hypocrites, but at the same time, blatant hypocrisy makes it extremely easy to dismiss legitimate concerns. Sorry, Hollywood.
