"Hollywood is lying!" shouts Mark Cuban. But what is he talking about? He's talking about piracy. Cuban states that there is no direct way to stop piracy, and the whole "Hollywood loosing billions of dollars a year" is just a lie! Mark states that if they used the same money they do to stop piracy to find new distributing mechanisms, they'll get much much more out of it. Of course, everything Cuban has done has either resulted in him becoming a millionaire or him becoming a millionaire, so there's no arguing.

What Mark did almost ten years ago with has been the main ground for what we have now, safe to say he was always ahead of its time. He's a man with strong views about things -- from piracy to high definition to podcasting, even the "special makeup for talent" issue around high definition. In this another exciting edition of Larry's World, host Larry Magid speaks to Cuban about piracy, content creation and distribution, high definition and everything content-related you can imagine.
