^Apparently -_-


Honestly this copyright stuff is stupid.

When someone pirates software its because they can't afford it! Therefore, they wouldn't have bought it anyway they (companies) are not loosing anything they just aren't gaining as much as they feel they should.

I know morally that pirating software is wrong, but when I want new songs and new games, I always would prefer to buy them legally. Its easier, doesn't take up as much space on the hard drive, feels nice to have a physical copy and you get all the online benefits. That being said, pretty much everyone else feels this way, so if someone could afford to buy one of whatever they are pirating, they would. That is why this can "hurt" the economy, and not do any damage.

No one printed that pirated book, burned the expensive CDs and packaged them into plastic containers filled with dead trees that no one reads. Its not hurting anyone and the market still makes a crap-load of money off of entertainment. More of it is being bought now than has been bought before.

great presentation. How much do you think that iPod would fetch on the black market?
