Never pay for any mainstream media ever. All of it is owned by Disney, Sony and Warner. Fuck them.
No, all copyright law is wrong. It is a direct violation of freedom of expression. The thing that should keep corporations from stealing ideas and stopping bootleggers is the thing you least want to hear; YOU! This wouldn't be a problem if people practiced their principles. Sucks to be a massive hypocrite I guess but it doesn't make copyright any more moral. No information should be illegal.
