I don't pirate films, I always buy it on Blu-ray or DVD. But what annoys me is when you buy a Blu-ray disc, the thing's so overencumbered with AACS, HDCP and other DRM protection you can't do anything with it. Also if you use a PC to watch them on you're always greeted with problems.   
   
You've got to update the AACS library all the time (which sometimes doesn't work because CyberLink sometimes need to patch their PowerDVD software - last time this took them a month). Sometimes I have HDCP issues on a monitor, when it is actually HDCP compliant, the software's just 						****					. It's against the law to screenshot a Blu-ray because Hollywood's scared you'll capture every frame of the film and re-assemble them in a video editor to copy the entire film. You can only output the Blu-ray on HDMI - Hollywood pressurised everyone to drop Analogue component video. Etcetera etcetera.   
   
Blu-ray's 						****					 really, not sure why I buy them sometimes.   
   
TLDR: No
