P2P is killing piracy

Well, this is a whole load of obviousness.

"The music industry likes to lump P2P and hard-goods piracy together, but they're not the same thing at all -- in fact, they're dire enemies. Piracy's biggest competitor is P2P"

Why pay some prick down the market for a lousy copy of a film when you can just download that lousy copy yourself, curse the uploader, and go looking for a better copy?

Then again, this guy over at /. makes a good point concerning the situation in other, less bandwidth-soaked nations, so if yr really interested in the debate u should definately check that out.
