Piracy has taken a hit, but not enough to hear the movie industry whining. They have been ripping the public for years.
1 – The movie "Little Mermaid" made a chunk of cash in the theaters. It wasn’t a box office smash, but did fairly good!
2 – Theater release to other countries made millions more
3 – DVD releases made it more money
4 – DVD rentals made even more money
5 – Pay-Per-View made some cash
6 – Cable subscribers (Like HBO) pay for some
7 – Broadcast on Network TV with commercials for extra cash
8 – Ten years later, it is Re-released and newly mastered! And makes more money
9 – Remastered DVD sales and rentals
How many times can they take the same crappy movie and turn it into cash?
