Studios form alliance to fight piracy

Disney, Time Warner, Sony, Viacom, News Corp and General Electric have created a joint venture called "MovieLabs" with an initial budget of $30M to study the issues of piracy and develop ways to combat it.

This is an interesting concept;

The consortium will look into ways to jam camcorders in theaters, technologies to detect illegal traffic on file-sharing networks, and methods for preventing unauthorized access to personal networks, among other technologies.

I wonder how they are going to combat boycott and apathy and resentment over high ticket prices.

"I wonder how they are going to combat boycott and apathy and resentment over high ticket prices."

What about crappy, unoriginal movies, and really bad remakes?

How about a studio alliance to make movies people want to see?

If people are willing to watch camcorder-based knockoffs of films it should be sending message.

The studios need to become netflix.
