Right vs Pragmatic

A great post on unauthorized content copying from Marco Arment.

One of the nice things about unauthorized downloading of your favorite TV show is that you don't need to pay any money for it. But there are lots of other nice things about it! For one thing, you get your hands on the show right away and you can watch it. If your company isn't offering a legal path for getting content as quickly and conveniently as the illegal path, then you've got a problem on your hands. The only thing I can recall "pirating" recently was Season 2 of Sherlock which I downloaded since the BBC had made it impossible for Americans to watch the show otherwise.
