Hollywood is Considering Stop Selling DVDs in Spain

Hollywood is Considering Stop Selling DVDs in Spain

Michael Lynton, the Sony chairman, recently complained that widespread piracy and commercial peer-to-peer networks has put Spain on the edge of not being a reasonable entertainment market any longer, as users download content in extremely large quantities. According to him, piracy is so widespread in the country that all Hollywood studios may quit selling DVDs there.

In the last years the number of illicit content downloads have rocketed from 132 to 350 million. At the same time DVD sales have dropped by around thirty percent. All this pushes Hollywood to find itself in the same situation as with South Korea, where it had to give up and leave.

Octavio Dapena, the representative for Egeda (the Spanish film rights association), says he feels very shameful and sad for his country reaching the level where world’s studios are considering leaving. He strongly believes this won’t happen if the country reacts in time.

The community faces the juxtaposition – current laws in Spain might be considered quite soft by the residents of other European countries. Users can share copyrighted content for non-commercial use, and even websites are allowed to offer links for free downloading if they also do not benefit directly from infringements. To change the situation the government recently introduced a law allowing the Federal Court to block or shut down sites accused of distributing copyright content within four days as opposed to the nowadays’ period of a year.

Actually, the problem could be solved in the other way – but it is not, because studios can’t understand they can profit from content distribution. Michael Lynton was the one who pointed out a year ago that he literally couldn’t see anything good coming from the web. That explains why Sony hasn’t thought about developing an efficient model of online distribution in order to compete with illegal alternatives and profit from it. They probably need to recall the story of music industry which ended up badly, as it wasn’t able to keep up to the market realities.

If the studios don’t want to think about giving users what they want (which is exactly online distribution), then it can get a ready solution. They have to understand that all ventures failing to heed the market won’t ever have a success unless supported by the government. Consider the opportunities – Spanish might not want to pay for the physical product, but will agree to pay for the digital one, since it’s 5-10 times cheaper!

Daewoo avatarIf they stop selling DVDs in Spain, wouldn't that boost piracy? You won't be able to buy even if you wanted to. Sounds ill thought out.

The Internet is full of websites all over the world with this very stuff (movies and Music)
If you can't get it locally (Spain)then get it from some where's else !

SnakeyB avatarThanks SaM, It seem seems people here in the article area on ET understand a lot more than Sony does. It makes no sense whatsoever to pull out and leave the people with no other choice than to pirate.

jenga122 avatarI guess there next step will just be to quit putting movies on DVD or Blu-ray. That would stop us all....teach us a lesson. It would be so easy for them to develop a cheap alternative to illegal downloading but I guess they just don't get it. Thanks for the article.

Sinisterj12 avatarIf i lived in spain.. i would just go download a dvdr of the movie i wanted and burn it if i couldn't buy... then once i would download it i would probably encode it and upload it and still... partake in pirating. Doesn't make so much since.. i wonder how much they currently make in sales in spain? Must not be much if they are going to just stop selling their.

No avatarhmmmmmm their sales are down by 30 % so their logic is now to stop selling the other 70 percent of the population that are buying and make them turn to piracy to be able to watch a film........ yep sounds like hollywood logic !

menahunie avatarLets see if this is correct? Hollywood and Sony are going to stop selling DVD's in SPAIN.
Really are they going to alienate most of the European market because they will not play ball with Hollywood and Sony?
That is a major shooting yourself not in the foot; but in the head..
So these people are going to include a clause in their whole sale contract NO DIRECT SALES TO SPAIN? Hmmmm Does that then mean a company that buys DVD's say in France can't cross the border into Spain and Then sell the DVD's? Not likely; but that is what will happen.
The main reason HOLLYWOOD and SONY refuse to sell their product Digitally is well you know what will happen... They will no longer have physical control; but they really don't even have control even now; except all those thousnds of law suit letters.
