Some television networks have banned Google TV from accessing their online episodes out of piracy frustrations. Will customers simply move on to more open networks?  (Source: Reuters)
Fox and MTV Networks haven't blocked their content yet

I mean, seriously, EVERYONE downloads music for free

Where did you get that statistic? Or is that how you justify your downloads?

Oh, I almost forgot...

The solution is simply this: Do it Netflix and Hulu style. Put every show, movie, etc. in one place and offer it for a low price with limited commercial interruption NOW before that massive pirating goes nuclear.


If that is the solution to movies & shows, why isn't that the solution for music? For a while now, there have been services that allow you to do just that for music, and yet you still claim that everyone pirates music.

I would wager a bet that most people download their music through iTunes or other similar online music stores. Microsoft's Zune Pass is a great option for those who don't want to spend a lot but still want to listen to a large collection of music.

The OP is just trying to justify his illegal downloads by claiming that everyone does it. iTunes passed the 10,000,000,000 songs purchased mark this past February.

It's a good service, and the 10 DRM-free downloads per month are a good way to justify the cost if I ever stop using it.

I'm not trying to argue, but I would love to find a place that offers this service. Can you tell me where I can go?

The only things I can find are places to buy music and download it. I cannot seem to find a place like Netflix and Hulu, like you stated there are, that offer a low monthly subscription where I can choose what I want to listen to via streaming and the content is updated regularly.

It also says "•Burn the song to CD up to seven times." That doesn't sound DRM Free to me??

It happened too late. That is the point I am trying to make.

If you can't afford it, then don't buy it. Don't steal it either. Derp.

There is a big difference in most people's minds between stealing an ACTUAL PHYSICAL PRODUCT and downloading music, movies, etc. online, where you are stealing NO physical product.
