Enough with the non-existing digital frontiers: Louis CK experiment a tremendous success

“I have a profit around $200,000 (after taxes $75.58)”


Louis CK is selling a professionally produced show for $5 with no DRM or regional restrictions. Success.

I steal content when I’m not allowed to buy it legally. If I can, I make the effort to connect through a proxy to buy some music, or change the country setting of my phone to buy an app, but if it takes more than 5 minutes to work around some stupid rules, I’ll just get the torrent.

This experiment is yet another example of how “Piracy” is about convenience, not price or moral values or whatever media execs say it is.

Sell me you stuff, with no stupid rules. I’ll buy it.
