Shut Down

For those of you who did not know, 123movies is a website where people can watch movies and TV shows for free.

While this sounds great, it is terrible indeed for the movie or TV show studio.

People buy good cameras, which can cost thousands of dollars. Props, permission to film in a certain area, hiring of actors, composers and other people, lights, visual effects and other things can really add up to a hefty amount of cash
Studios can lose thousands, even millions of dollars if they do not earn profit. The studio can and will become bankrupt if it goes on for too long.

Think about this - put yourself into the shoes of the head of a studio. You hire many different people - editors, animators, producers, directors, actors and more. You buy HD cameras, camera quadcopters, vehicles, permission to film in a house, costumes and more. You spend millions of dollars. Just as your TV show starts broadcasting, or your movie starts coming out in the cinema, you find out that people can watch your movie without spending a dime.

Due to this, no one spends money to watch your TV show or movie, and you don’t earn money from it. All the money you spent on - wasted. Not even for charity, just wasted. Would you like that?

Although some might argue that 123movies would be beneficial for the poor, there would be no way to stop wealthy people from being able to watch their movies and TV shows. Also, if you can afford a device capable of browsing the net, you most likely are able to afford a few movies. You can also get a Nextflix subscription, which allows you to watch thousands of movies and TV shows.
