I don’t worry that much about piracy.
My stories are reasonably priced
and my target readership
has more money than she has time.
She’ll pay for quality
and pay to avoid viruses and other nastiness.

Kevin Spacey
shares
(this entire 5 minute clip is gold)

“Clearly the success of the NetFlix model,
releasing the entire season
of House of Cards
at once,
proved one thing.

The audience wants the control.
They want the freedom.
If they want to binge,
as they have been doing
on House of Cards
and lots of other shows,
then we should let them binge.

I mean I can’t tell you
how many people have stopped me
on the street and said
“Thanks.
You sucked three days out of my life.”

And, through this new form of distribution,
we have demonstrated that
we have learned the lesson
the music industry didn’t learn.

Give people what they want
when they want it
in the form they want it in
at a reasonable price
and they’ll more likely pay for it
rather than steal it.”

Ask yourself
if you’re giving people what they want
when they want it
in the form they want it in
at a reasonable price.
