Gimme a break.. people like Beyonce, 50cent, Metallica etc can blat on all they like. As long as they are making hundreds of millions for having fun and being adored by millions, while we pay through the nose to listen or watch it, there will be piracy. Brad Pitt... $40 Million for a movie? Turn it up. Pay him5 million and charge me $5 to go see it. Bill Gates $80 BIllion? Turn it up. He should have 2 billion and I should pay $100 for Office Pro, not $600. Things are clearly overpriced. Companies dont charge what they need to to make a profit anymore, they charge what they think we will pay regardless of what it costs to produce.
