Here's a link about an Academy Award screener of Something's Gotta Give that was distributed on the Internet. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=794&e=6&u=/eo/20040113/en_movies_eo/13265

My neighbor's daughter came up last Friday and I told her to come to the theatre to see Something's Gotta Give. She told me she had already seen it on the Internet. Guess she reaped the benefit of that screener.

How are they/we going to deal with piracy?

According to an NBC nightime news story yesterday, the industry has now set up dozens of false download sites that trace the location/identity of anyone who downloads from them, and the download automatically disappears after from the thief's computer after the download is complete! Prosecution then follows. Maybe this will help the situation, since they have now prosecuted hundreds of music downloaders from such as Napster. (It seems that all recordings are now micro digitized with identity labels inside the image or music that enables them to identify the origin of a particular print.)

I know it's a problem but I have not noticed that people have stopped going to theatres.
