For purposes of how telecom costs are inflated I am assuming the customer works within the legal/regulatory system established for buying programming and broadband access

Folks thought Napster was the answer to the high cost of recorded music too - that did not provide a long term solution
Yeah, Napster went away quick though. Pirate Bay just celebrated its 10th year anniversary.

You can download music on there too.

And it's not just Pirate Bay, that's just ONE of the bigger torrent sites. Torrents and streaming sites are here to stay. They just get more widespread every year.
