First I thought 9/10, then I picked lower. I mean, the movie ticket distributer will take a cut of that, and it's not like you only get one shot to view it like you do at the movies. So to me, it's not the same as buying a copy to own. You own it and could show it.

I'd rather buy a downloadable copy of a movie for less than a hard copy price. Say, $10 a download, and that's still less expensive than Matt and I going to the movie at the theater.

However, I would do it if/when I could. ;) but then again, I don't always follow what I think is morally correct. sometimes I just do what I want.

I meant to say I MAY do it if/when I could. I wouldn't ALWAYS I'm sure.
