Visa fullständig version : Why I think entertainment isn't worth paying for

I don't really care about movies. They're just something to do to pass the time---if I'm bored and there happens to be a movie I can watch, I'll watch it. Otherwise I'll just find something else to do.

If all my friends have seen a movie and are talking about it though, then I might feel compelled to see it (maybe spend money on it).

Now, what if there was no copyright law? Let's assume the "worst" case that everyone stops making movies.

Well, I wouldn't be any worse off! I'd just find something else to do. And since my friends haven't seen that movie now, I don't have to pay to see it either, so I'd be better off.
