NBC claims peer to peer priacy is hurting farmers

NBC Says that P2P is Robbing Poor Corn Farmers

“Because of our nation’s interlocking economy, two-thirds of the lost earnings and lost jobs are in industries other than motion picture production. For example, in the absence of movie piracy, video retailers would sell and rent more titles. Movie theatres would sell more tickets and popcorn. Corn growers would earn greater profits and buy more farm equipment.”
Well, slap my ass and call me Bobby (as in Bob Wright, CEO of NBC -- leader of the nincompoop who said this).
