Make them stop claiming for it as an expense? :D
The Pirate Bay case has only fueled the fire. It is making people more aware of the site so people who have never heard of it now use it. I know of 3 people who never heard of it now use it.
Myself i do download some content purely because they are taking the mick on the prices they charge. Anything i do download i do not distribute again.
They have not got a cat in hells chance of stopping it. Torrent software is changing the way it works. Some software is using encrypted SSL VPN links to get the content across. This mean ISP's dont know what is going down the VPN tunnel and they can't block them. The only way they can block them is blocking port 443 that will also mean https sites wont work.
Smart advertisers would be commissioning commercials which advertise the product even at 6x speed (as some do).
aye, I agree to an extent, but how many of us sit and fast forward through adverts when weve sky+d the show. And as for family guy etc, I downlaod the new eps of them too, but I also sit through all the repeats on Sky, Channel 4 and RTE.Quote:

And I think ITVs problem is due to the crap that they show more than anything else. Whats on ITV worth watching? STV has Taggart. ITV has a Soap for the grannys. What else is there?
Since Tivo sells there software (iirc) to sky which make sky+ epg sky may have the option to do that too but that would kill my sky subscription if they did.
I do buy music online and CD but I think tbh online needs to be all in lossless format now as I can get the CD and rip it for less then getting it online. I have several places that sell lossless wav etc to me a decent prices.
TBH as well there really needs to be a flat per month rate for music in lossless too.
I would just ditch the sky+ reciever and use my own. Ive got a Fortex Star reciever for one of my dishes and the CAM Ive got in that accepts the Sky card. A better model would have an pvr too.
