This article[^] was in the Daily Mail discussing online piracy. My thoughts on this is that the content providers are their own worst enemy. I would happily subscribe to 2 or 3 services that delivered the content I want in the format I want (no commercials). Instead the providers insist on creating their own delivery systems. So now I have to subscribe to 3, 4, 5, or more at $10 a month to get the programs I want to see and my list of must watch is not that long. I currently have cable, hulu, and netflix. Now a new Star Trek series comes out and they want me to subscribe to see that one program? No thanks, now I'll see if I can find it somewhere else.
