Been speculating about this for a while with friends. For Microsoft to really get back into the game they need to do some serious innovation. Kinect is their perfect opportunity and if they pull this off in a clean 'user-friendly' way this may be the future.

Pretty much sums up the issue.
Hilarious but spot-on comic from The Oatmeal explains Hollywood's piracy problem: "I tried to watch 'Game of Thrones' and this is what happened"

Andy Ihnatko agreed with the main thrust of the comic, but wrote something of a rebuttal to what he calls an "unintended point" of the cartoon: "The single least-attractive attribute of many of the people who download content illegally is their smug sense of entitlement....

Andy continues:

"Here’s the terms of use for commercial content: you have to pay for this stuff. This means either you need to wait for it to become commercially available, or if you torrent it today you need to buy it when it gets released. So long as you buy it as soon as it’s possible to do so, I can confidently reach for my “No Harm Done” rubber stamp. Some content is commercially unavailable because the publisher or distributor has no desire to ever release it. I’ll even go so far as to say that downloading it illegally is a positive thing; you’re helping to keep this creative work alive.
"If you avoid purchasing the media in some form, however…you’re just one of those people who prefer to steal things if they think they can get away with it. Simple as that. Get off your high horse."

This is an important point. If you want to have moral grounds for illegal downloading, you should a) have already paid for the content at least once (e.g. if you are an HBO subscriber, and could have time-shifted the content, but found downloading easier) or b) pay for it when it does become available.

Discuss.
