Now pirates... I mean... P2P'ers are planning a boycott to dispute the attacks on stealing... I mean P2P software. The P2P Unite Movement Site.
I dunno about you, but I'm TOTALLY going out to see like 3 movies, rent and buy 5 or so videos, and pickup a whole slew of CDs to make up for the 3-10 people in Cincinnati that will actually follow this movement. Kinda like eating the second helping of beef when you aren't hungry just to spite vegetarians....
Now that I think more deeply, even if the are successful at slightly dropping prices of stores, it wouldn't be noticed by people like the RIAA or MPAA. Think about it. If "CD Store X" gets less sales that week, most likely it won't be noticed because it'll be masked by the monthly sales... but even if a good manager sees the weekly drop, he's not really going to slow down supplies for his store (not for a one week drop). So the suppliers see no slowdown and the RIAA sees business as usual. If they really wanted to make a difference, they'd have to boycott at least a good month... the best scenario would be start a boycott and don't stop until changes are made. But you can't do that, cause there aren't enough people that use P2P software that are willing to give the stuff up (hell, they are willing to use illegal measures to get the stuff... how are they gonna drop it cold turkey??).
Its just like T(H)GSB... most of slashdot's users don't comment. Those that do comment, only 5% or so even care about the moderation system. Of those people only 35% or so would be willing to boycott slashdot for a week. Meaning, comments were down less than like 1%... not even noticable.
