Well, the ability to watch movies on a PC has made watching movies on PC's more widespread, period. Your statement is about as vacuous as that.
Yes, it's made watching movies on PC more widespread in general, but it's increased the level of piracy since some 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 don't think it's been demonstrated that the proportion of piracy to legitimate activity is in any way increasing.
