Let's face facts, piracy isn't going anywhere and all these efforts to stop it are simply a waste of money. But it can be slowed down quite a bit IMO. How though? I think a huge thing is a refund policy across digital media (CD's, downloads, apps, movies, video games). For a while I refused to buy music because I was tired of getting a tape (yes I'm an 80's baby) and the majority of songs may or may not be good and the no refund policy really irritated me. I felt cheated on more than one occasion. CD's came out and the same thing continued. That prompted me to start pirating them. I actually bought more music AFTER piracy (and I know I'm not the only person like this) due to the fact that I knew the music was great. Why buy you might ask? Because the sound quality is way better on a CD than any other digital media and the fact that an artist and label has to turn a profit. If they do, they crapify their music so I feel like it's my duty to pay for it if it's good. If i could buy the CD, and if it's bad, I can return it, same with apps, games, movies. How can you really be mad at people about piracy when you're essentially forcing them into it with terrible policies? I think if we had some better consumer laws about this we wouldn't have as big of a piracy problem.
