The Truth about the Economics Behind the Blacklist Bills | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Jaja, Filesharing zerstört Arbeitsplätze. Nicht: "According to the non-partisan Congressional Research Service, the movie industry employed 374,000 people in 2010 — and that includes both full and part time workers. Amusingly, another bogus report from an MPAA-backed group claims the move industry loses 373,000 jobs per year, when, in fact, they’ve only arguably lost 18,000 since 1998. For a tech industry comparison, eBay alone was responsible for creating 724,000 full or part time jobs (people who relied on the site for primary or secondary income) — and that was in 2005.
Despite all the strum und drang, the movie and music companies contribute the same amount to the economy that they did before file sharing was mainstream—in both 2011 and 1995 their contribution to total GDP was 0.4%. Even better news for them: the Bureau of Labor Statistics gives a wholly positive outlook on future job prospects in the movie industry. This is evidenced by the fact that Warner Brothers just posted a record profit for the third quarter and why Viacom just gave their CEO a $50 million raise."

Actually, Jobs In Making Movies Are On The Rise, Not Falling
"In 2002, there were about 43,000 people employed in the actual production of movies and videos. In 2010? That number had jumped to 77,000. Not bad. So where are the few job losses coming from? Well, there are about 1,500 fewer jobs in "movie and video distribution," but that makes sense, since technology is making that area less important. Really, the only place in the industry that has seen a significant loss in jobs (and even then it's not that big) is in the movie theater business. Employment in movie theaters dropped from about 134,000 in 2002 to about 119,000 in 2010. That accounts almost entirely for the drop in total employment in the movie business from 392,000 down to 374,000 that the CRS report noted."
