Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

I use XWT and it's perfectly legal where I live. I don't really see why others attack them so much.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Rojadirecta is legal in Spain yet US authorities shut it down :nando Shouldn't the terrorism or the economy be more of a priority than shutting down a website that indexes sport links?

Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

The way I see it the entertainment business in general needs to find ways to make people want to pay to see the product. I don't know how but someone out there must have an idea on how to get someone to buy the DVD instead of downloading it.

ROH should be happy people want to download their product though. It could lead to more people tuning into the TV Show or coming out to a show. It's not like they live or die off the DVD sales.

Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

Exactly.

Piracy is nothing more than an indication, at best, of an error in service delivery. Disagree? Read

Quote:
This wasn’t Valve’s approach, though – it offered the carrot instead of the crowbar. “The easiest way to stop piracy is not by putting antipiracy technology to work,” Newell said. “It’s by giving those people a service that’s better than what they’re receiving from the pirates.”
But, no, no. RoH and other companies continue to dig their heels.

Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

ROH has all their shows digitally available in days, has a large chunk of their back catalog available digitally as part of a relatively cheap service.

People still steal from them.

Sometimes I question why I watch. Probably b/c I pirate it and doesn't cost me a dime. Only my sanity with certain "workers".

Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

Personally, I'm the kind of person who's less likely to buy something if I download it so I can see why promotions would try to crack down on piracy. I do however, agree that piracy/free content has it's advantages. Beyond Wrestling is the perfect example. They've become the #1 Subscribed Indy Wrestling YouTube channel by posting free content constantly, and that free content creates a buzz which makes more people check it out, and potentially buy the DVDs. I agree with the quote that Rah posted but I don't really think ROH could offer a service better/equal to XWT, or any other piracy site.

Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

A lot of wrestling sites (forums and torrent sites) were ddos attacked last week around the same time, which was odd to say the least.They've all tried, they'll never succeed.I get why they are doing it, they have a business to run, but it still won't work.Close one down, 10 more will pop up

Re: ROH Attacking XWT?

It's legal to share files where XWT is hosted, therefore, they aren't really doing anything wrong. You can't force American laws on other countries, and if you want to, you better be ready to have some of their laws forced on yours.

Honestly, I think XWT and torrent sites are good for ROH. It's better to have people watch your product for free than not watch it at all, because I doubt most of the people would buy ROH anyway. Hell, I review ROH every week and I don't even want to watch it.
