  • It IS possible for ISPs to control the websites/filetypes/content that you are able to access. BUTImagine all the information that will be blocked. Access to legal content will also be affected.An effective BUT DEFINITELY NOT a viable solution.
  • Recent public backlash due to Ubisoft’s decision to connect to server constantly
  • Can these be avoided?
  • Marketing, CGI, Voice actors, Packaging, Developers, Designers etcetc.Actually, counting inflation, cost of games has not changed all that much.
  • Cost/ waiting time per game can be lowered. Breaking games into modules -> Customized games for each person?Not cheap. Need constant attention to a game for a period of time. (Maybe 2-3 years?)Resources can be used elsewhere.Effectiveness depends on quality/brand names of the companiesSolution simply provides incentive for the public to purchase an original product
  • Advertisements only shown in cinemas – Show on TV, newspapers, PostersEducation system – Most schools have IT/social studies subjects where students learn about computers/Internet. Include IT awareness in schoolsThe media has been quiet about any news/punishments regarding media piracy casesSolutions take some time before results can be seen. Effectiveness might be low, depends on public acceptanceCost wise will be quite high -> Marketing campaigns are never cheap
