Only Honest Customers Suffer
While the Netflix changes are certainly annoying, and the messaging was less than stellar, we need to make sure to remember where the blame ultimately lies — with the content providers. Until they decide to get with the program content distributors like Netflix and Apple will always be at their mercy and customers will continue to suffer.
Let me just fix that last sentence real-quick:
Until they decide to get with the program content distributors like Netflix and Apple will always be at their mercy and honest, paying customers will continue to suffer.
Everytime I see a Disney commercial advertising how a movie will only be available for a limited time before going into the vault, I have to wonder how much longer that trick will work. I doubt even honest customers will continue to wait for the next timed vault release instead of simply finding a torrent and downloading it.
Note: I do not condone piracy, but in situations like this, I understand why some choose to do so.
