Lazy Entertainment Industry Deserves What It Gets
Professor Carrier has it right. It's only the likes of Pirate Bay that have dragged the entertainment industry, kicking and screaming, into actually providing online services that consumers want. Ultimately, am I now going to be prosecuted for lending a Blu-ray disc, a CD or a book to a friend?
I recommend The Pirate Bay and www.newtorrents.info and www.thebox.bz.
Rogues, scoundrels. cheats...
So what's new?
This is bad, bad, news
I suffered under Lovefilm for some months last year - unauthorised debits to my card, unreliable deliveries, high instance of faulty discs but yes, mainly a cavalier, almost fraudulent attiitude to the card detauls I had entrusted to them. It took loads of correspondence with my card issuer to extricate myself and now I'm still plagued with spam froim Lovefilm alomost every day.
I've been using Amazon happily for a couple of months now so this is bad, bad news as far as I'm concerned.
I also use, would recommend and perhaps will now use solely Cinema Paradiso
