While your argument may have some merit, using firearm related deaths as your statistic is ridiculous. Of course you're going to have more firearm deaths in a place that allows firearms, that doesn't mean it's less safe, just that a particular cause of death is more likely. A better comparison would be the intentional homicide rate plus the accidental firearm related death rate.

The problem is that if everyone pays the per-unit cost, movies can't be made, only distributed. For the system to work everyone has to pay the per-unit cost, a share of the overhead, and a bit of profit.

That said, I disagree that pirates only want to pay the per-unit cost, many would be willing to pay the regular price to get things in the format they want at the time they want. Since this is frequently not available, they resort to piracy.

Your argument only works if police are required to use the device and the case goes to a jury. If they aren't required to use it there's no reason why people should expect there to be a recording. Without the recording, there's a good chance the case will be dismissed for lack of evidence as judges are prone to trusting the word of cops.

Those who can, do; those who can't, simulate.
