Former Disney Digital Boss Says He "Loves Piracy"

This is a bit of an odd stance for a former movie executive to take when it comes to piracy but he does have a point about piracy being an indicator of content popularity. I think that once Hollywood accepts the fact pirated movies do not necessarily equal a lost sale, they can work toward converting casual pirates with better content pricing and availability.

Entertainment industry workers usually speak about illegal downloading in the harshest of terms but for one former Disney executive, it has its upsides. Speaking at the huge All That Matters conference, Samir Bangara admitted that he "loves" piracy as it's a great indicator of content popularity.
