+ - Cutting Prices is the Only Way to Stop Piracy->

Submitted by Stoobalou
Stoobalou (1774024) writes "The only way to stop piracy is to cut prices. That's the vedict of a major new academic study that reckons copyright theft won't be halted by 'three strikes' broadband disconnections, increasing censorship or draconian new laws brought in under the anti-counterfeiting treaty ACTA.

The Media Piracy Project, published last week by the Social Science Research Council, reports that illegal copying of movies, music, video games and software is "better described as a global pricing problem" — and the only way to tackle it is for copyright holders to charge consumers less money for their wares."
