    As several have noted, the question is whether using streaming services, digital copies, digital lockers, etc is greener. I would certainly hope so. I stopped buying physical copies of movies/music/software several years ago and haven't looked back. If the content companies could pull their
    collective heads out of their mulch piles, they would embrace this and there would be no such thing
    as a disc anymore.

    Makes it easy to take your media with you as well!

    Obviously owning a digital copy of the movie is better than owning a DVD of it. Less waste, no production, etc. You can't actually explain this properly though because the person is asking about whether illegal activity is okay because it's "green." Come on now.

    Whether or not downloading movies online is even "stealing" is an entire debate on its own. I have never heard of the movie police ever breaking down someone's door for a few unauthorized copies. This is a blog about Green Living, not Copyright Law. And in green terms, downloading is better, as that is one less DVD case and DVD that would probably have only been watched once. As for resources devoted to enforcement of this law, perhaps blame would better be placed on the corporations that control the government and force them to waste time chasing ThePirateBay instead of enforcing real laws.
