If the studios do manage to stop piracy, I can be pretty sure my
consumption of their products will decline close to zero.
I don't go to a movie because it has a huge budget, but because it
tells a good story.
There are plenty of ways to occupy an evening without consuming
Hollywood fare, and I suspect success in blocking torrents would be a
boon for the talented independent film makers and animators that 'get
it', especially now the infrstructure to get a movie from the internet
to the lounge room is getting widely distributed.
