Today the RIAA, MPAA and all major U.S. Internet providers launched a new plan to curb piracy.
The landmark agreement comes with a new website which is littered with blatant propaganda statements.
Or facts as they call them.
This is my personal favorite:
“Content Theft Means Less Internet Bandwidth For You: A recent study found that digital content theft, including the use of P2P networks, streaming and cyberlockers, accounted for almost a quarter of global Internet bandwidth consumption.”
Yes, pirates steal your bandwidth.
However, legitimate movie watchers on Netflix are also a massive problem.
The same study has shown that Netflix is the absolute king in terms of Internet traffic in the U.S., accounting for a quarter of all traffic during peak hours.
Yes, more Netflix subscribers means less bandwidth for you!
