Asher Moses over at the SMH has written a fantastic article dissecting the figures bandied around by anti-piracy lobby groups. Like a surgeon's scalpel slicing through rotting flesh, Moses dismantles the industry's arguments, labelling them as self-serving hyperbole.
The article runs through a number of issues related to piracy, from the lofty numbers thrown around by the entertainment industry, to the analysis of the legal proceedings against "Australia's biggest pirate". Time after time, the entertainment industry is found wanting in justifying its claims.
If you want to understand just how much the entertainment industry is crying wolf on piracy, this is a must-read.
