"Netfix customers, of course, have taken to the virtual barricades to complain about the price increase for an unlimited DVD-and-streaming plan. The phrase 'price gouging' has no doubt come up a few times. (Josh Zerkle throws some necessary cold water on that argument.) What’s interesting is that it won’t occur to most people to direct their anger at the Hollywood studios that are actually making it more difficult — thanks largely to the their dependence on the government’s copyright regime — to open up more content to online streaming."
