Game of Thrones

game of thrones - Daenerys_Targaryen_Game_of_Thrones_5_Emilia_Clarke

So, did I download the entire new season 5 of Game of Thrones and use that as an excuse to post a pic of a lovely topless girl, namely Daenerys Targaryen? No on both accounts. I’ll watch this show on TV. However, the boss of HBO likes piratism and thinks it benefits the show. Just read this:

“…in response to a question about whether the network kinda-sorta regards the extensive theft of HBO’s flagship show, Game of Thrones, as a compliment, Bewkes said, “I have to admit it, I think you’re right.” The much-discussed fantasy series is HBO’s most popular, and “if you go to people who are watching it without subs, it’s a tremendous word-of-mouth thing,” the exec told investors. “We’ve been dealing with this for 20, 30 years—people sharing subs, running wires down the backs of apartment buildings. Our experience is that it leads to more paying subs. I think you’re right that Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in the world,” he said. “That’s better than an Emmy.”

Read the full article here. It’s from 2013 but nothing has changed since then.

February is the month of book sales, and I have just spent around 65 euros on various books; novels, fact books, comics. That took a big chunk of my media budget, so once again I have to emphasize that it is not that I am not willing to spend my budget on legal media. After my book purchases are done, I have very little money left for this kind of “fun buying” and that’s why the above producers and studios did not loose anything from my downloads. If my wallet is empty, it doesn’t matter if I download a movie, as that is the same as refraining from buying it because I am broke. Simple as that!
