Andy Budd on the UK film and TV industry

“People don’t go out of their way to pirate movies and TV programs; they’re not intrinsically bad people. They do it because often it’s quicker and easier than legitimate means. The quicker the film and TV industries recognise this and make it as easy to buy legal content as it is to download illegitimate content, the more likely they are to stem the flow.”

Andy Budd sums up the current stand-off between the UK film and TV industry and the viewers in his article Generation Y-pay. I completely agree with Andy, there is nothing worse than a show airing on TV in the US only to be spoiled on Twitter while we wait months for it to air in the UK.
