Entertainment Industry Should Adapt Business Model NOT Ask the Government to pass SOPA and PIPA
Clarksville, TN – We are told we live in a free market economy driven by the simple laws of supply and demand. However, there are exceptions, bank bail outs being the most obvious. In March 2010, I wrote an article about how theater owners do not follow the laws of supply and demand. The recent discussion about the SOPA law has me thinking about this issue again.
The entertainment industry is tired of having their product stolen via a black market. But instead of asking the government to police access to these black markets, the industry should ask itself why the black market has come to exist.
