Im thinking people that watch movies recorded on cell phones dont exactly represent lost sales for the movie studios.

Stop releasing movies early
They keep releasing these films in foreign countries before their US release. Its like they want/need the pirates to fuel the market in the US. I have seen copies of all the latest movies listed on torrent sites before their US release.
It is crazy to try and watch a cell phone or camcorder version, the quality and sound aren't worth a multi-hour or days long download. Now the Star Wars ones ripped directly from the theatre master was nice.
