Digital Pirates Threaten to Sink Hollywood

Where is Errol Flynn when you need him? In the good old days, Hollywood didn't lose money from pirates -- they made money from them. As the New York Times reports, however, the movie industry is beginning to suffer the same fate as the music industry, now that increasing bandwidth and better streaming technologies make it so easy to watch bootlegged copies of movies still in theaters.
Eventually, of course, Hollywood won't have any money left to make movies, but so what? That just means Lindsay Lohan will have more time to party, and we'll finally get around to watching E.T. and Wild Strawberries.
