During the Emmy Awards this year I notice they're now acknowledging the shows which were pirated the most. Personally I think this sort of dissolves the taboo aura which surrounds the topic of piracy. Maybe like other topics which are not more quickly accepted like marijuana. Although its illegal (piracy) its used by a large numbers of people.
Huh? Not sure how nominating a show, based on its quality (according to voter preference) has anything to do with piracy. Plus, which shows are you talking about? 'Game of Thrones', for example, has been nominated for best Drama Series since its first season. It is not just now being acknowledged.
I didn't watch the Emmys. Can someone tell me the context in which this piracy was "acknowledged"?
I watched it and have no idea what he is referencing. The shows nominated, that are on some "most" pirated lists, have been receiving recognition by the Emmys for years.
If Meyers, the host, or a presenter mentioned it (which I can't remember them doing), I still don't get how that matters. It wouldn't be the first time. I mean, I really have no idea what this "taboo aura" is he mentioned. Piracy is talked about ALL the time by the TV/Film industry.
