[ EEPI-Discuss ] Cammers, Topsites, and the Film Pirates' "Yo Ho Ho"



   While Hollywood has battled various forms of film looting for
   decades, this time seems different. Piracy in the digital era is
   more lucrative, sophisticated and elusive than ever - and poses a
   far bigger financial threat.

   "Piracy has the very real potential of tipping movies into becoming
   an unprofitable industry, especially big-event films. If that
   happens, they will stop being made," said Mr. Jackson in an e-mail
   message from New Zealand, where he is putting the final touches on
   his version of "King Kong." "No studio is going to finance a film if
   the point is reached where their possible profit margin goes
   straight into criminals' pockets."
