    It is his right.

    I don't have a passionate position on this topic one way or other.
    Either you tried typing that on your iphone or it was late and you had a couple, either way I'm not sure what you were trying to type there, but I'll assume you meant something like...actually, I can't imagine what you might have meant.

    No, nothing wrong with it at all, especially considering the age of the content in question. Plus, I refuse to buy something before i know i like it. Usually if i like something, i'll eventually pay for it.

    I think most people would share that sentiment. There's plenty of money to be made, it just needs to be in a different business mdoel.
    I would gladly pay that. Gladly. I'd like that to be an a la carte option with my cable company. But if not, no matter what, I'd like it to be streaming so you can watch it on tablets, phones, laptops, whatever. Like Netflix. I like that I can start a movie on my laptop and pick it up on my Kindle.
