Pirated copies of movies, compact discs and books. . .

Pirated copies of movies, compact discs and books. . .

Post Wed Sep 20, 2017 7:59 am
Pirated copies of movies, compact discs and books have long plagued the producers of such goods. Unauthorized and illegal copies of movies, compact discs, and books cost the industry billions of dollars each year. Recently, the government has decided to redouble its efforts to curb the illegal distribution of pirated materials, although it has angered the publishing industry by not increasing its efforts to stop pirated books.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the government’s decision not to increase its efforts to stop pirated books?

A) No other industries are angered by the government’s decision.

B) Books cost more to print and distribute than do movies or compact discs.

C) Much of the illegal activity the government is attempting to stop takes place overseas.

D) Because of the cost involved in printing books, most pirates convert books to digital formats stored on compact discs before selling them.

E) Book publishing brings in a smaller amount of revenue than do either the movie or music industry.

The OA is D.

What is wrong with option E? It seems correct too.
