Dutch Parliament: Downloading Movies and Music Will Stay Legal

Instead of a download ban, the parliament suggests that the entertainment industry should focus more on offering authorized alternatives. At the moment, it is practically impossible to download high quality copies of recent movies and TV-shows via legal channels in the Netherlands.

I think the Dutch are right in doing this. Pushing things forward by accepting the current situation and telling the industry to do something about it. They now have both the technical and financial means to do it. They will just have to invest some of their means.
