D. Eric Franks (videopia.com) claims that at some point soon, there will be no physical delivery mechanisms (DVD, BD, etc…) but that all content will be viewable (and listenable) online.
At that point we may have a start to battling piracy.
Of course, there will still be folks who record and resell, but if the price is reasonable (like less than $5 for something current or $1 or even free for something not) it will be cheaper to pay for the legit version than to buy the knockoff.
I have this now with my cable company – I pay a fee (high but I get every channel except the sex channels and extra fee sports channels) and can watch/record all sorts of premium content plus there are hundreds of free channels and thousands of on-demand shows/movies available.
