What about the use of whistle blowers and rewarding them to combat piracy?

The whole honor system doesn't work. People download movies, music, and software, then have the audacity to brag about how big their catalog as a means to show off. And it's being done not just by teens, but adults also.

Walk into an ethnic grocery store and take a look at their movie rentals. You will not see one authentic movie, but a huge selection of burnt discs. Even non foreign movies which are released here in the USA are on the shelves. People just tend to look the other way these days, either because they want to pirated copies, or because they don't like confrontation.

There needs to be a campaign to shame those that break the piracy laws, not just sue them.
