The Psychology of Movie and Music Piracy in the A/V Industry

Do you like being told what you can and cannot do? Do you like being told what you have to do? I think the answer to both questions for every human being on earth is, “No!”

This goes back to one of the oldest stories ever written. You know, the one about Adam and Eve and the apple tree. They were told they could have anything they wanted, except apples from that tree. So what happened? They ate an apple from that tree.

There is another story, more modern, but with the same outcome. A mother tells her child that he can play in the back yard and do whatever he wants. But, under no circumstances is he to put beans in his ears. An hour later, the mother is digging beans out of her child’s ears.

OK, let’s move to the point. Consumers of music and movies are told they are not supposed to copy the content because it is copyrighted. Well, how many of us have ever copied music from a CD? Probably 100%. It took an act of the US Congress to ensure the “Fair Use” policy such that we could copy CDs for archiving or playing the music in our cars. So, the music industry started adding a few cents to the price of blank tape because they assumed everyone would be copying their music. Well, that may have pulled in some cash for awhile, but no one is using tape anymore.
