Do you think Netflix will falter when Disney arrives to the steaming scene?

Do you think Netflix could be disrupted if content became cheap to produce (through new technology)?

Do you think we could lobby to get copyright terms greatly reduced? How would we go about doing so?

I'm really interested in your thoughts.

(I'm pursuing a startup to answer the second question, but I'm worried the incumbents will simply copy us if the technology works out as well as we hope.)

1) No, Netflix is fully on track to become as good or better than its competitors at producing content at a faster pace, than competitors are becoming as good as Netflix at delivering content online.

2) No. Netflix is doing quite good against youtube. Netflix are also doing quite good in animation, which is a genre that has become much cheaper to produce in the last 20-30 years thanks to technology.

3) I don't know. Maybe. Disney has apparently given up extending copyright, so at least things are moving in the right direction.
