Headline: Piracy will continue

Nutshell: Everyone will keep using music and DVD's and not pay for them.


At the moment, music piracy is already a problem and so is DVD piracy. In the future, this will progress to become a major problem if something isn’t done now to prevent sites from continuing to enable people to do this. We know the major one; Limewire. Personally, I pay for my music using iTunes and pay for DVD’s and etc. But in the future, if governments don’t get together and stop this, it will become a significant problem for directors, actors and musicians.
