Hollywood Jobs Lost Because Of Outsourcing, Not Piracy

Over the years the MPAA has been repeatedly blaming online piracy for massive job losses. However, the statistics presented seemed to come from nowhere concrete, which has been pointed out a few times and the authorities agreed. For example, some of the researches carried out by the industry made really outrageous suggestions like that a month of torrenting costs more then the entire GDP of France. Meanwhile, many other studies have proved that piracy either doesn’t affect industry’s revenues at all or is net benefit to sales.

The question left is what is the real reason for Hollywood jobs layoffs? According to the recent report, there’s a reason for jobs still being lost in North America, and it’s outsourcing – one of the great problems that faces almost every industry. The LATimes report revealed how a very successful visual effects studio known for being involved in the effects of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, and “Terminator Salvation” had to close down.

The report explains how the company came to this outcome, laying off around a hundred of workers, regardless of earning Academy Award Nomination and getting decent credits to their name. The main reason for it was foreign competition. It turned out that the shutdown was because the studio was located in Canada, which used to be an attractive source to where the jobs are going – when the Canadian currency rises, there are no incentives for the companies to tap talent from there. Among other places that saw job losses there were London and even well-known outsourcing destinations like India and China. Actually, outsourcing is a common problem of the arts and technology industries – it may be enough to quickly browse through freelance sites for professionals in North America to get worried about their job security.

It doesn’t matter whether you think that piracy is a reason for job losses or not – anyway, it is quite hard to disagree that outsourcing is a sound cause for some companies in North America to close down and lay off up to several hundreds of employees in the process. Those claiming that piracy is a sole reason for people losing jobs in the movie industry are at least disingenuous.
