I'm a fan of piracy.
I pay $50 for internet...
i support piracy not because i dont respect the industry but i support logic. if the chances of getting caught for taking something for free of the net are insanely low and all thats preventing me from doing it is ethics, then my ethics say save my fifty dollars and download the movie/album/game/book and keep it. sure the author loses his cut of one book (or millions) but the truth is if they dont want people to steal it dont force them into a situation by raising the price of music to $25 for a cd or $30 for a dvd or $60 dollars for a game or fucking HUNDREDS of dollars for software. when i see prices that reflect the quality of whats in it then ill stop stealing ... but till then ... my name will be Steal the Dragon for the win.
everything on the net thats free is most likely to be pirated stuff........download manga, songs, movie, software etc.......but i do it anyway since the real thing is too expensive......if its movie, i dont care a single bit about the production house or the artist....once they sign the contract for a movie, whether it'll be a blockbuster or not they already got their $millions.......if its a song, i buy the album of the artist that i like....manga is not available so i got no other choice, sure i can get it from amazon or ebay, but thats just too expensive
Music people usually only get money from tours and shirts and things.
all the more reason NOT to pay $20 for a fucking 50 minute cd.
the only albums id buy the real versions of are by Eminem, Jay-Z, Gorillaz, The Pillows, Linkin Park, and Fort Minor.
I'd buy the ones at second hand stores.
for me id be lying if i said i dont pirate stuff
like most i cant afford all that crap
i cant spend 800$ for a program cuz i want i nice siggy
or 20$ on a cd i want for 1 song that i like it in
20$ for 3~5 mins of entertainment is stupid ~_~
i still try to buy games i loved, but like most here ...~_~
I could count on my fingers how many times i have buy dvds, cds, softwares combined. Why buy it when you can get for free? my name ain't bill gates.
^Point made, I agree with you lol.
I really dont have alot of money...
