simultaneous releases

Does the film industry need simultaneous releases?: "While that results in fewer CD sales, the costs to the record companies to sell music online are negligible compared to making, packaging, and shipping CDs around the world. "

Yeah, cause they're not doing anything once the music has been produced.

The article is talking about releasing DVDs and online at the same time, but I this quote stuck out to me.

Another interesting quote from the article.

This begs the question of how much such activities actually hurt the movie industry. The actual economic impact is arguably negligible — studies have shown that those who download movies are no less likely to go to the theater or rent and buy DVDs.

I gots to read them studies.
