... I have a 100 euro 'budget' every month that I spend on 'entertainment'.

If I can't download series and movies for free (and then buy the ones I liked/loved), now I'll just spend part of that 100 euro budget on buying ripped versions from some smarter (less lazy) pirate than I am for giving me 'safe' copies, and because I then already 'bought' these illegal version, I won't buy that same product twice.

This will cost Hollywood more money, as most research has already shown that piracy actually leads to MORE sales, not less.
