In the hopes of applying common sense... Just because someone sees the arguments against piracy as reasonable, doesn't mean they have a vested interest. Given Mr E Smeg's open hostility towards me and what I do, I doubt he's on the Dave staff! Having an issue with this kind of piracy doesn't make you outdated, it's not a resistance to the times. It's a resistance to the 'it's out there, thus I'm entitled to it' logic that can, yes, be damaging to popular media. People ask 'What are we supposed to do?' and the keeping-it-legal answer is 'wait'. Just because it's not on in your country today, doesn't mean it won't be soon. I've happily waited for House and Prison Break. But if you've seen it illegally, will you still be watching it when it arrives on TV? Will you apply the same pressure to your local PBS station? You may say you'll buy the DVD, but how can a distributor be sure there's a market for it any longer, and risk a DVD release, when the TV ratings are low because everyone saw it on torrent? Of course a download doesn't equal one lost viewer/sale. Of course it's not that directly harmful, not at all. But likewise, it's not harmless, either. And a refusal to see that, in my experience, is often based on a person deciding they want to do something, then figuring out the justification for doing so. In an ideal world, of course every show would go global in the same instant. And eventually, no doubt that's the way things will go. Which is fantastic. But for now, I'd suggest those who are getting to see the show tonight show a little understanding to those who are so desperate to see it that they'd go to illegal lengths; and equally, that those who aren't understand that there's a difference between 'not getting to see it' and 'not getting to see it this week'. Can we please draw a line under the insults and claims that the other side aren't seeing the truth of a situation? We all know these things live in a complex grey area, that there's not much absolute moral right or wrong. Both sides come from a basic position of wanting to support the show. That's the only thing that matters tonight.
