Selling digital content is a strange business. You can't exactly call it stealing when people can make infinite copies of your product and aren`t taking anything from you. On the other hand the maker needs to sell in order be able to produce.

I only pirate things which are exorbitantly overpriced, or hard to find. If it's out of print and I`d have to buy it used. If the money is tight.
Louis CK did that thing where he made his special available for $5, and I bought it. That`s a reasonable price to charge someone for an hour`s entertainment. The problem with a lot of media, be it music, movies, or games, is that there are so many various companies who get in line for a piece of the pie that it drives the price way beyond the actual cost of creating the content and compensating those who worked on it.

If any of you were in the business of creating content that could be pirated, you might think differently. I think pirates are a-holes and criminals. How pathetic do you have to be to steal a movie that costs $5 to rent and even less to watch if it's on Netflix? LAME

oh, plus, it's not like I`m going to buy the stuff anyway, cause I dont have enough money, so in effect, they are losing no money from me. I do not contribute to this equation. My crime is victimlessssssss
