Oh No! Pirates Steal Your Bandwidth!

News Bits

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!

Touché.
