If you pirate any remotely popular culture you're counted as the reason why anticircumvention laws exist. If you watch them "legitimately" you're incorrectly counted as supporting said anticircumvention laws. If you shun popculture entirely, you might struggle to socialize.
@alcinnz I think there's a fix. I create my own characters and stories. I go to conventions dressed up like a character of my own invention. I chose my own definition of fame rather than letting others define that for me.
