ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the status of growth and development in the film industry. Having watched the rampant piracy that has plagued the music industry since music downloading became commonplace, industry observers believe it is only a matter of time before those same issues hit films. Wall Street is eyeing the developments cautiously. The movie business is notoriously risky, and it's not clear whether the studios will be hard-bit by the changes afoot. As for the fears of piracy, the industry's tech avant garde says it won't be as common in films as in music. Besides, consumers are demanding the change, which, they believe, means it is better to get ahead of the curve than to resist it.
