Okay, so I'm not being a bleeding heart here but I'm trying to state the facts.
The facts, in anything, can be skewered by the man who does the numbers, so facts should be taken by a grain os salt and a small prayer.
However. This site, and many sites like this, are a God-send, yes a God-send, to many people. IF you were a paraplegic or just in a wheelchair for any reason whatsoever, your chances of going to a theater to see a new film are diminished by the ability you have to travel.
There are a lot more people on the edge or below poverty level who are unable to sacrifice food money to pay for $12 and up for a theater ticket.
This gets worse if you have a family to support on a very limited budget, but you still have to provide a semblance of stability to that young family.
While studios make a fortune on some movies, break even on others, or lose money on some of the crap they produce just to stay in the production line, does not give them the right to discriminate against those who are unable to pay the ever growing fees they ask for you to see their product, and often, that product is not worth the money you pay.
They still make their profit, even if you download a movie to see with your family. Don't fool yourselves. If there was no money in it, they would not be doing it, and the amount they lose to the ones that cannot make it to the theater, is inconsequential.
Ahashare is doing a great service, and just like any other service, there are people who abuse it.
There are no solutions. However, one must realize that this is in fact a service that has provided joy to many shut-ins, people of restricted mobility, and users that have been staunch supporters of a system of entertainment that they otherwise could not afford.
This is why, it is totally essential, that when you download a film, book, whatever, seed for as long as you are able so others may enjoy the offers of our many providers.
Some day, you could end up in a situation like some of the ones I mentioned above, and I pray you do not. But, it is possible, and without sites like this, sorry for the language, you'll be f*****.
Enjoy and seed.
