Morning Legal Briefs

My point was, if that was the case, and the DVD home version was a paler experience compared to the theatrical release...then Avatar would have been less pirated than most other films, not more pirated.

I disagree. It was pirated more simply because it was more popular. Proportional to its box office sales the levels of piracy don't seem any higher than with any other film. They may actually be a bit lower.

If you are in a poor family, you can't afford to spend 12 bucks a person plus the money for concessions, so the only option is to simply pirate it or go without. Given the exposure and press the movie got, more people are going to pirate it than a less popular film with less buzz. That's true in virtually any country in the world.
