Warner’s actions expose their own propaganda

Warner Home Video intends to reduce the price of movies in order to fight “piracy”.

When thieves get a 5-finger discount, the property owner is hurt. As well, the consumer is hurt as compensation for theft usually results in an increase in price of the remaining property for sale. Stealing a shop owner’s property hurts many people. Therefore, it is against the law.

So how then, has Warner miraculously come up with a plan that defies the laws of economics? If millions of people are “stealing” their “property”, it is nonsensical to then lower the price of the remaining movies. Doing so would be economic suicide. That is, unless movies are not “property” at all and therefore, not susceptible to “theft”, not require “protection”, nor demand “compensation” when “stealing” occurs.
