    Default What do you think about piracy?

    I pirate a lot. Movies, games, mangas, books, music, and other stuff. What about you? What are your opinions on this subject?

    i support it 110%`


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    well if you can't buy those movies, games, mangas, books and music where you live or in your own language then it's really a choice as to how you view it. Do you feel bad that you have to resort to piracy to be introduced into such things? If you don't, then as long as you're not caught *kudos*

    Personally I see them as a way to preview something. Then I buy the real thing cause I want to support the people. I buy mangas and movies I really like. I've never though, bought a pirated book (0.o). Real copies are pretty cheap.

    An example, after previewing an asian drama should I buy an official dvd that's formated in a region my dvd player won't play there are programs to make it region-free that are free. I've bought the product and am just converting it to a format I can play. That's not bad in anyway. But if I just bought a copy that someone already did that too then that's not cool because I'm supporting the people who worked to bring me that drama. Just the person who took 15 minutes per disc converting it. Something, I can do myself.

    Piracy rocks! Okay, maybe I shouldn't have said that since I'm an aspiring programmer, but as of now, piracy is the only way I could aquire a copy of whatever game there is out there, due to lack of fundings. Let's accept it, would you rather buy something for more than 20x the price even though the content is pretty much the same? Sure there could be damaged ones or whatever, just buy another copy again.

    Yeah, piracy is a pain. Which is why I'm hoping that digital distribution becomes the trend, and, as far as games go, we can get rid of the need for a publisher.

    Support pirate. Real thing costs way too much, so they should think of bringing prices down to gain more supportive ppl who would buy the real thing.

    i dislike piracy in a whole, but some industries are so stupid (music) that you are better off with a pirated thing than the original one... and that's a shame !

    > i never buy music, especially not online >.>
    > i wanted to play HL2 offline as my brother bought it a week ago, and can't because of their crappy system => i'll never buy a valve game in the future.... in fact i may never play one of their game
    > i'm starting to think the same about dvds, because come on, they sell a crappy dvd, then the collector dvd (i buy), then the supra collector dvd, the special edition dvd, and etc. to milk the cow to the max, and they too often breach the limit... (and i don't even speak about dvds of a worse quality than a ripped one available on the net)

    aside from that, don't pirate ~_~

    It's hard NOT to pirate these days. Almost anything you want and need can be obtained through downloading it for free. Why would you want to pay for anything you can get for free?

    Wait, wait, is downloading stuff from the internet considered piracy? I thought it meant selling licensed stuff by ripping or duplicating it?
