Who pirates Autralian content? :P

Piracy of foreign content has almost zero impact on the Australian economy expecially as it is much cheaper these days to buy your CD's, DVD's, and games from overseas.

The whole "piracy costs the economy billions!" argument has always been a broken window fallacy (ie that a kid who throws a brick through a window actually causes positive economic stimulus by keeping window replacers employed). But this kind of idiocy is what happens when you are retarded enough to believe an "IP economy" is possible. Record execs should just start learning Mandarin.

Yes, nonsense, along with the argument that piracy is stealing - total bollocks.
