Content producers think, "Ah, I don't want to front something like this. People won't pay for it, so I'll get nothing back". Then he doesn't hire actors, writers, secretaries, etc.
So the job is gone. People don't get that work because the thieves stole it. They didn't pull out a gun. They didn't lop off any fingers. But the people who make the stuff people want don't get to choose that work because the thieves didn't give them that choice.
Well, hey, you know what? I say the thieves don't know any better. I say the people that want that content know better. I say the people who want jobs know better. I say the GoT thieves who high-five each other all day belong in jail so the rest of us can pay lower prices for a better selection of stuff.
I say it's time for the government to do what we're paying them to do and enforce the law!
