Matthew Inman, a well-known satirist who goes by “the Oatmeal,” published one of the most popular and controversial cartoons last year. He looked at all of the different problems that are currently facing content distributors and producers in the digital world, which pretty much means all of the producers and distributors today.
The comic was titled “I tried to watch Game of Thrones and this is what happened.” In it, Inman showed how he could go to a number of distributors including iTunes, Amazon, and Netflix with a credit card in an attempt to buy a digital copy for his laptop. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible for him to do that.
Then he went on to show that he was able to get a pirated copy (which he felt guilty about) available in a few clicks i.e much more conveniently than any legitimate version.
Why and What are People Pirating?
