According to government agencies of the film industry, illegal downloading of movies online has expanded recently. Ilbo states that when movies come out online a few weeks after the movie has come out in theaters affects the film industry financially. These damages are not just to the film production company but also to the director and actors, because when the industry as a whole makes less money so do the people who earn their livelihoods from producing films. It is a serious issue for the film industry now to be able to provide people with a superior movie theater experience in order that they are willing to purchase a ticket instead of illegally downloading to watch at home.

One of the main factors causing a movie piracy is that college and university students, who were once up to forty-four percent of annual income for the film industry, are stealing movies for free. This piracy results in $6.1 billion in losses for the film industry. The author puts forth the argument that while the film industry wants consumers to know how wonderful films are, the reality is that if students stopped downloading there is no guarantee that they would be interested in certain movies -- they might be willing to watch them, but they are not willing to pay for them. Further, studios are often limited in their ability to market films.

That said, the author argues that piracy is the main obstacle for developing the film industry today. Downloading movies illegally also exposes uses to viruses, because there are few anti-virus controls associated with file sharing. As long as students are sharing files, they are not capable of avoiding viruses. It is for the benefit of both the film industry and students to eliminate file sharing.

The spectator is unwittingly sutured into a colonialist perspective. But such techniques are not inevitably colonialist in their operation. One of the innovations of Pontocorvo's Battle of Algiers is to invert the imagery of encirclement and exploit the identificatory mechanisms of cinema in behalf of the colonized rather than the colonizer (Noble, 1977). It is from within the casbah that we see and hear the French troops and helicopters. This
