I'm sick and tired....

Of hearing the MPAA (Motion Picture Association) and the Music Industry complain about how much money they lose every year on piracy. I'm definitely not condoning piracy, but here's my issue.

How much does it cost nowadays to buy a CD or go to the movies? The prices are astronomical. On average, a CD is $15-$20. And what you're really paying for are maybe 3 to 4 good songs, and 10 songs you could live without. Movies cost almost $10 a person, not to mention how much the price of food at theaters. With the price of gas over $3 a gallon, the cost of homes astronomical (especially in the bay area), and plenty of other things with their prices getting higher, it's no wonder people are choosing to pay little or nothing for their entertainment. Maybe if the MPAA and the record companies decided to lower prices and make movies and music something the average family could do without breaking the bank, more people would go. Why do prices for CD's and movies have to go up every 6 months to a year or so? It just makes it really hard when everytime you turn around, prices are going up, and you keep making the same amount of money as you always have. When you get a raise, you usually get a percentage. But when movies and entertainment items prices go up, they go up almost whole dollar amounts.

I would almost guarantee that if they lowered the prices on movies and music, they would make more sales.
