Studios: Piracy Halved Without Sending Any Infringement Notices

According to the big name movies studios, piracy is *flips coin* down by half this month! Next week *shakes magic 8 ball* I see a resurgence in piracy. roll eyes (sarcastic)

According to a submission made to the New Zealand government by the major studios, the mere threat of sending out an infringement warning halved movie piracy in less than a month. After years of battling for "3 strikes" the studios haven’t sent out a single warning, but nevertheless insist that to reduce piracy further they’ll have to send out thousands. The recording labels want to do the same at a greatly reduced cost, but the ISPs want to charge four times more than they do now.
