Yes, it's made watching movies on PC more widespread in general, but it's increased the level of piracy since a lot of people who wouldn't buy an illegal physical copy of a music CD or a movie on DVD will download an illegal copy given the ease and anonymity (or at least perceived anonymity). There's nothing vacuous about pointing that out.
I recall being discouraged that the first time I knew about "Bit Torrenting", about five years ago, was overhearing a couple of primary school aged kids talking quite matter-of-factly about some yet-to-be-released films they had already seen.
