what are you talking about with non-profit piracy?this is the real world, and if a person can buy a dvd bootleg dvd for 5 bucks instead of 15 or 20 he will. then using word of mouth they will tell all his her friends and they will also but the bootleg dvd. none of the people who baught the bootleg dvd are ever going too buy the original, why would they? or a person will rent a movie from blockbuster then burn it and return the rented dvd. this guy/girl will then let his/her friend eighther borrow the movie of burn him/her a copy.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?"
Actually, who are you not to be?
