To millions of people, buying a bootleg movie on the street or downloading music illegally at home seem like harmless choices -- but media piracy costs the global economy a staggering 57 billion dollars a year. Crime Inc. goes inside this high-tech, high-stakes underworld, from the criminal players ripping off music, movies and games, to the artists, musicians, actors and directors who have seen their industries undermined and their livelihoods threatened. Media pirates operate around the world, but not surprisingly one of their centers of activity is the place where entertainment reigns supreme: Hollywood.
