Yeah, that's more or less the point. All real barriers to distribution are pretty much gone. You can watch anything you want and whatever time you want where ever you want. Except for these daft little artificial barriers to distribution that the cable companies and content providers artificially impose in order to hang onto a hopelessly outmoded business model.
Seriously. I've been pretty religious about buying legitimate copies of anything that I like enough to stream more than a few times. But when they insist on this kind of asinine restrictions on, "Oh, you found a legal copy of the song you want, but this album is only available in iTunes Nigeria currently. Please check out the offerings available in your current region..." I'm paraphrasing, but I'm not making this up. Found a rare song by a band I liked and wanted to buy a legitimate copy. I can't. Because I'm not in fricking NIGERIA.
This is when I seriously start asking myself why I even bother trying the legal approach. When they make it this difficult to be the good guy, why bother? Why not just be a pirate? And this is me, ME saying this. I haven't pirated anything in darn near 2 decades!
