Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is well known for his outspoken nature.

He has a weekly YouTube spot WTF Sutter where he gives updates on the new season of Sons of Anarchy and vents his views on any number of subjects - but now he has turned his attention to something he warns is "getting fucking dangerous".

In response to an article which argued that Hollywood should stop seeking the "voluntary agreements" with Tech companies that aim to reduce online piracy - Sutter hit back with a piece of his own.

Marvin Amori, a lawyer working for Google, had written in the first article that Hollywood was like an ex who won't leave you alone. Sutter took issue with this, writing:

He compares Hollywood to that insidious “ex who won’t give up” pursuing you and making your life miserable. As a guy with more than a few exes, I have to tell you, Marv, the most insidious ex is the one who hides the truth, steals your money, and lies to all your friends. That’s what Ammori and Google are doing.

He went on to argue that if content is available for free online it will not allow high quality shows like Sons of Anarchy to keep being produced, as there will not be enough money to keep the system alive.

But what do you think? Is Sutter right to argue that companies like Google should try to protect the industries they deal with? Do you think this could lead to less great TV shows being made? Write in with your thoughts below the line.
