In my mind, if i pay the $20 to buy it on DVD/Blu-Ray, then I should be allowed to download it.

To me, it's the equivalent of backing up something you already own

A lot of poeple don't know this but its legal to download a movie if you own it.
What people get caught and tried about is torrenting, and only if they seed. Because distribution is really illegal.

But isn't pirating a movie still considered illegal since you're not technically paying for it, which is considered "stealing?"

If I were torrenting something right now and a cop walks through my door and sees me stopping it right before it seeds, would I not get arrested?

if it hasn't seeded 51% of the movie total (so if move is 1gb 501 mb) you are only recieving stolen goods. Which means its a minor missdemeanor and you would only get fined.

Piracy's not destroying Hollywood.   
Just the video game industry.

you have that confused. It made more in its opening weekend than any other movie did in their opening weekend. It didn't blow avatar out the water in 2 days of course

I think that the problem is not for the big film companies, but for those who want to start something new. Thanks to the piracy, it's harder to have the income some little companies need to grow.

3D costs a couple of dollars more though.

That was the opening weekend. Not a whole lot of opportunity for pirating there.

Because of inflation, ***** .

But I do agree with you, piracy's not a big deal for the movie industry.
