I'm going to disagree with your last, for everything that has vanished or been shutdown in the last 10 years, 2 new methods of acquiring content have sprung up to replace it.
Thanks to Octo, I received a warning from my provider that NBC or ABC had complained copyright infringement for downloading Revenge episode 7 (I actually downloaded 1-11). My provider said basically, we won't give them your name unless they sue us, but stop it. My answer in court would be I pay for cable, including this channel, and therefore paid for the show. My cable company sells me a DVR so I wouldn't be watching the commercials anyway- would you prefer I never ever watch the show or I get caught up and start watching it in a way that justifies ad revenue? And BTW, since any idiot can make it available for free, why can't you? I should be able to go to any networks website, enter my cable subscriber number and download high quality copies of missed episodes. So go fuck your copyright, I got some shows to download.
