Rob Reid: The $8 billion iPod

TED offers an excellent and entertaining talk about the numbers spewed by the entertainment industry that appears highly-relevant in this era of SOPA, ACTA and the TPP. In keeping with the theme of this excellent TED Talk, I'm simply going to copy and paste the relevant information in here:
Comic author Rob Reid unveils Copyright Math (TM), a remarkable new field of study based on actual numbers from entertainment industry lawyers and lobbyists. 
 My favorite quote from this witty, entertaining and informative talk is,
"[The first MP3 player] was a big Christmas hit, because what little hoodlum wouldn't want a million and a half bucks-worth of stolen goods in his pocket?"
