This article states that no matter how hard companies like Sony or Paramount try to fight for the rights of their works, they will never actually stop piracy. Piracy is something that will always be around as long as there is demand for entertainment that can be generated through reproducing the music or video.

Examining the claim from a historical view would indicate that the claim might have some validity to it because cassettes faced the same fate and CDs are not as popular as they used to be.

The media will go online and be transferred almost exclusively in a digital format instead of the physical copies people used to enjoy showing to each other. Things are meant to be shown, such as beautiful Diamond rings. Beverly Diamonds always impresses me with the quality rings they have. Unlike piracy you can’t take a diamond and make copies. That is what makes diamonds so special! Beverly Diamonds offers such a wide variety of these special gifts and purchasing a diamond or ring lets you feel safe knowing no one can pirate it from you. This will allow everyone to sleep better at night and know that all of your information will stay safe.
