US Movie Industry Hurt with Poor Distribution Logistics

Economics researchers have once again managed to undermine the link between movies’ American box office returns and BitTorrent file-sharing. The study they have published a while ago (we already mentioned it yesterday) proved that reducing the timeframe between the American exhibition and overseas releases can result in less file-sharing, thus reinforcing the premise that people from abroad download films as they couldn’t purchase tickets to them.


The results of the study reveal that file-sharing, at least partially, happens in result of imbalances in supply and demand. Since the entertainment industry fails to fulfil demand in other countries, casual moviegoers are driven towards illegal sources in the first place. The longer the consumers have to wait for their favourite films, the higher the chances that they will turn to unauthorized download instead.

Nevertheless, this theory does not explain all unauthorized downloading, because some people just never visit the theatres to see their favourite releases, regardless of movie availability. For this type of consumers, the delayed release will only render downloading easier and more attractive, and they constantly turn to file-sharing to obtain a copy of the films they like onto their PCs.

In most cases, though, “anti-piracy” campaigns are more a matter of profit maximization than survival. Regardless, the awareness on the issue of optimizing international releases can secure good profits at the box-office, at the same time helping to bring down exaggeratedly high and sometimes unnecessary investments in copyright enforcement.

According to the researchers, American Internet users will choose between the box office and piracy, and in most cases they choose the box office. However, the foreign consumers that would consider both options are more likely to choose piracy because of the lack of legal availability. Despite the fact that countless studies have already provided evidence to the needlessness of the entertainment industry giants’ assault against file-sharing sites, those still remain a subject to ongoing harassment. Finally, the results of the study suggest that the pressure on file-sharing sites may work well when inducing the fear of prosecution, but the reality is that the studios do have the power to contain piracy by a shift in perspective. They simply don’t use it.

williebk avatarGood point, people are broke and unemployed in many other countries besides the US. People could care less about “anti-piracy” campaigns. They shut down megaupload and 50 more sites pop up. The only way they can stop piracy is to shut down the whole internet.

Rockman avatarCan t stop laughing "According to the researchers, American Internet users will choose between the box office and piracy, and in most cases they choose the box office."

Who are these naive idiots doing research most Americans don t know Of P2P let them know give them a choice then they will embrace P2P only then will americans do as you suggest folks overseas do; that is choose the P2P option overwhelming.

N3K avatarI agree with this as I don't wait 3-6 months for something the US considers "old". Mainly talking about TV shows and their distribution through AUS.

pjth avatarIf the movie industry would get it's head around new distribution channels the profits would be doubled in the first year. somehow one gets the feeling that Don Quichote are the CEO's fighting windmills. There are Young people out there that have tried to get to these CEO's and introduce them to new highly profit making models embracing the internet and P2P and they give up because of getting frustrated by some low level pencil pusher that has nothing to say in the first place. Lack of vision and crap movies that get pushed with false advertising is what costs them at the box office. If you want to see a movie bad enough you don't mind paying at the box office. The big problem is that we download and they are to stupid to to come up with a model that would make them money when we do, and pre-scan the movie if it is worth going to the movies.

Lets face it, a evening at the movies can be nice entertainment and a good start to the evening if it is a good movie or end up as a real crappy experience and ruin you evening. Who doesn't remember "The American & Driver" both sold as action flicks and what a waste of money for anybody who expected a action movie. Not bad movies but deliberately misrepresented in the advertising and the internet killed both those movies with the emails. I had 15 emails telling me not to pay to see both of those movies that watching the trailer was all the action that happens in the movie.

False IMDB reviews wont help them either to push crap. Friend of mine is hired by the studio to post false and misleading IMDB reviews. Stop scamming people and deliver the goods that we want to see and nobody will mind paying.

Acta is dead in Europe because politicians have realized that supporting Industry against the voter gets you fired. The internet makes the voter more powerful and politicians fear for their jobs.

Let's look in the crystal ball and you will find in future there will be even more lobbying to restrict the freedom of the internet. How dare does the voter tell politicians what they have to do, industry pays the big bucks and now in Europe the Voters have shown the politicians that they will get fired if they dare ratify ACTA so all those millions have been pored down the drain. There a an estimated 100.000.000 down loaders worldwide which i believe is humbug there are more down loaders than there a Facebook users and that market is completely closed to the Industry because the have no idea how to talk to us.

No avatarThis actually has happened to me several times. Movies were not released in theatres I could get to, so I had no reasonable way of seeing them other than through pirate channels.

Also, there is the issue of their differing release dates. Why release the same movie in the same language on different dates in the USA and England? Why should UK residents have to wait? This release schedule makes no logical sense and only serves to encourage people to seek movies through pirate channels.

If the movie industry really wanted to cut down on piracy, they would address these issues. The groups like RIAA, however, fill their pockets by pursuing "pirates" and have little or no incentive to address the causes of the problem. They make their money by dealing with the symptoms.
