People are free to use Netflix or go elsewhere, I just don't think it's fair to accuse them of being money-grubbing bastards trying to squeeze a few more bucks out of loyal customers. The studios, as usual, seem to be the real bad guys here.
I think some people - including a vocal minority on the internet - misunderstand the old customer service mantra of "the customer is always right".

Yes, you people are customers, and yes, the underlying philosophy is paramount to any organization's successful customer relationships - but no, you are not, by definition, "right", nor are you entitled to anything beyond what is legally or contractually agreed upon prior to any kind of transaction.
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
