Illegal movie downloads is bigger than legal alternatives

It's no surprise that illegal video downloads surpass legal alternatives 5 to 1. If the studios decided to stop with moves such as geographically limited licensing that allow online stores to sell movies only in certain regions, then the world outside the U.S. (yes, there's one!) could buy more of their movies:



Of course you can find movie download online stores that sell outside the U.S, if you are interested in a comprehensive collection of B movies. Or if you are interested in a selection of music clips. Nothing against CinemaNow or Digirama, I am pretty sure they would love to sell a bigger variety of videos, if allowed by the industry.

You can try searching for "online video purchase" or "online video download" and see if you can find a service where you can actually purchase video content.

The industry is wrong. The big guys are not making money because they are not selling their product. Instead they rather battle the consumer.
