At the start of July we reported some news on the latest move by the U.S. government to crack down on online movie pirates, which included nine websites being shut down for streaming video illegally.
Over the past two weeks we have noticed some interesting feedback from those that viewed this news. First we see that most users feel that there is no new Ninja video site, which can give them the free streaming they had before, and the second thing we noticed was the reasons people gave for choosing to stream.
Most people would buy their media if they could purchase a product that could give streaming to any computer they want to be using at that time. Apple iTunes has a big user base, and these people buy movies and music with costs running into thousands, but they are limited to only five computers.
It’s understandable that this is to prevent people using the media on other people’s computers, but at the same time it seems this is one of the biggest reasons NinjaVideo.net users gave, after the site was shut down.
Do you agree with this? What are your reasons for streaming, and not buying?
