File Under: No Shit

Netflix is claiming that pirating drops in every country it switches on it's servers.  Furthermore - and this is something I feel like the unwashed masses have been saying since the Napster days - Netflix's Chief Content Officer says that if you want to combat piracy, you have to offer a better product.

According to Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, this is because “…people are mostly honest.” Sarandos went on to tell Stuff that: “The best way to combat piracy isn’t legislatively or criminally but by giving good options. One of the side effects of growth of content is an expectation to have access to it. You can’t use the Internet as a marketing vehicle and then not as a delivery vehicle.”
Suffice to say this goes for music as well.
