It might be illegal, but is it bad?

Michael Hinman over at SyFy Portal has written an interesting article on the problems of distributing a television series around the world. How the staged worldwide release of some series effects the piracy rates of the particular show. He goes on to say even though a small percentage of viewers might obtain and view a pirated episode before it is shown on local television. The show’s producers and networks should not blame piracy for the shows lack of ratings or its eventual cancellation.
