We've Seen This Movie Before

File at least 4/5 of this article under First World Problems, but the author (Bill Wyman) does make some good observations and comments towards the end.  I'd sum most of them up in my own words thus:  If you compete with "free" by making things easy, how do you compete with "free and easy?"

Or, as Wyman put it:  
Right now, in fact, the movie and TV business looks a lot like the music one did in the early 2000s. And as we've seen, that decade didn't work out too well for the labels. So it's worth looking at the situation and wondering how things are going to fare in the TV and movie world in the decade ahead. It can all be summed up in one single sentence...The easiest and most convenient way to see the movies or TV shows you want is to get them illegally.
For the author's sake, I'm glad this article came out before Netflix announced their new pricing plan.  I think that news probably caused Wyman's head to explode.
