We may not agree with the RIAA on much, but today they made a surprising statement that we can actually get on board with: innovation is the best way to stop piracy. Our question for you is: What kind of innovation would get you to stop downloading media illegally?
The statement was hidden away in a much longer article about the impact of their anti-piracy efforts — which TorrentFreak argues is more than a little misleading — but at least they’re acknowledging that draconian business models are not going to get them out of this mess.
So, for you pirates out there: What kind of innovations would get you to go legal? Or, for the less anonymous among you: what kind of innovations do you think would be the most effective at curbing piracy? Lower prices? Less DRM? A bigger selection on online services? Let us know in the comments below. And, while you’re at it, hit the link to read the RIAA’s statement, and TorrentFreak’s response.
