Canada has capped those kind of lawsuits at $1500 and their legal fees are significantly more than that. Take a very expensive lawyer some time to do all the paper work. It's an overly publicized scare tactic and what really gets under my skin is that a lot moral-less thieving punks would be legitimate customers if there was a modern distribution channel for the product.

The last time I watched TV I was baffled. Normally I choose between ads or paying for content, with TV your only option is both. Not to mention programmed vs on demand, modern GUIs vs that worse-than-using-a-command-line thing they put on digital boxes.
