So, I'm checking the YouTube channel for this one movie, and they've got this:
Surprise announcement - they're going free in a few days! (April 5th.)
They needed to pay for everything, as you can imagine, but now that they've managed to cover all their bills, they're making the movie FREE!
Compare that to the media mafia model - Charge as much as possible for as long as possible then fight in court to extend the copyright life, retroactively, and sue everyone you possibly can, all the while making ludicrous claims about losing money orders of magnitude larger than the entire industry.
I'd say that I've lost some respect for the media mafia, but that would be lying as I have none. I think I just have a bit more contempt for them than I used to.
