You can run but you can't hide from the MPAA

The Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA) has expanded its crackdown on online movie piracy by filing seven new lawsuits against online sites. Websites targeted include Isohunt.com, BTHub.com, TorrentBox.com, TorrentSpy.com, NiteShadow.com, Ed2k-it.com, NZB-Zone.com, BinNews.com and DVDRs.net.

“Website operators who abuse technology to facilitate infringements of copyrighted works by millions of people are not anonymous – they can and will be stopped. Disabling these powerful networks of illegal file distribution is a significant step in stemming the tide of piracy on the Internet,” said John G. Malcolm, Executive Vice President and Director of Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations for the MPAA.

That quote that "you can't compete with free" is not really true.
I would GLADLY pay for the peace of mind that I am downloading a file at a reasonable price that I can be sure will be free of viruses, spyware and other nasties.

But notice that 'reasonable' stipulation. The MPAA and RIAA don't want to give a reasonable price, they want the same overly inflated fixed prices that they have been getting in stores.
