Los piratas del cine

Irónicamente los que hoy tanto reclaman los derechos de Copyright fueron los primeros piratas.

Los estudios de cine de Hollywood (Paramount, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, etc) existen porque se mudaron a la costa Oeste para evitar pagar derechos de copyright a la MPPC (Motion Picture Patents Company).
By 1912, major motion-picture companies had set up production near or in Los Angeles.[18] In the early 1900s, most moviemaking patents were held by Thomas Edison's Motion Picture Patents Company in New Jersey, and filmmakers were often sued to stop their productions. To escape this, filmmakers began moving out west, where Edison's patents could not be enforced.[19] Also, the weather was ideal and there was quick access to various settings. Los Angeles became the capital of the film industry.[20]
