The author offers commentary on an article about research in the motion picture industry in this issue of "Marketing Science." Topics discussed include the effects of file sharing and copyright piracy on the motion picture industry as well as ways to counter the implication of widespread replication on the industry. The author suggests that this will affect film production and potentially harm the video industry, translating into a shift toward theatrical exhibition and more films that are meant to be seen on a large screen.
