Dreamworks do have a point. It is unfair on them but The PirateBay guys do have a point.

For some reason I'm fine with streaming, but I don't like downloading. It's an odd fine line.

"I'd have no problem with the second scenario, because if I ever were to publish a book, it would be under a creative commons licence, and you would have the legal right to copy and share it freely."

I agree with this statement... As a writer/lyricist, I am always open to letting the public access and use my works in any way they see fit. I've never charged for anything I've ever done, whether it be writing for a local band or writing poetry... My time is valuable, but I make my money with my real job. I dont need to charge for my art.

"So... What if you wrote a really great story and then I published it in a book and made tons of money off it? I'd give you credit, of course, but since you didn't publish it, I'd make all the cash. That seems fair, right? Or maybe if you did publish your book but then I just photocopied the whole thing and distributed it on the internet on a website that I run and everyone loves the book so much (and especially the getting it for free part) that I make a killing on ad revenue and you don't get any."

I believe I already addressed the first scenario when I said that I believe artists should have the right to control how their work is used commercially- so if you published my copyrighted work without my permission and sold it, I'd sue your for 100% of your proceeds and win. I'd have no problem with the second scenario, because if I ever were to publish a book, it would be under a creative commons licence, and you would have the legal right to copy and share it freely.

"Stealing is stealing no matter if it is in a store or online. I had a friend who made a low budget horror movie that was downloaded 50,000 times illegally and he didn't get a cent of it. I think we should be able to prosecute these people regardless of what country they are in or at least prevent their services from reaching the USA."

If you can't figure out how to make money in the current technological environment, you don't deserve to make money. Profit is not a right- it's a privilege owed only to those innovative enough to provide a product that people are willing to pay for. If your friend had been able to successfully been able to pitch his film to indie theaters, and it was good enough that people were willing to pay to see it, he would have made money.

Well, if someone is making a living creating "art" then by paying what they are asking for the privilege to enjoy their work you are showing that you support them and want them to keep making it. You can hope for free art as much as you want to but you have absolutely no right to demand that anyone do anything for you without compensation. If artists want to release their music or movies or games for free or with no DRM that's fine and dandy but if they don't and you pirate their work you're hurting nobody but the artist.

@Wraithix

The US government has already been working on ways to censor the internet, and ways to block US net users from openly accessing overseas servers... Yes, is retarded. And YES its more evidence of Big Brother watching us all, but we can't stop it because those who have the power will never let the citizens gather enough to quell their continuous rape of society.

As pertaining to things like GAMING, I agree... These people worked hard to develop the game and deserve compensation. My belief is that true artforms (i.e. music, film, paintings, etc) Should be done for free and presented to the public for free because art has no concrete monetary value. Its all about how much the producer of said art wants to make off it weighed against how much it cost to produce it.

"or at least prevent their services from reaching the USA."

You want to start restricting the internet? Hell no! That would be a stepping stone towards the government deciding what we can and can not view.

Also (since you posted while I was posting) games, movies and music cost money because the artists or developers have to live somehow. If prices are fair is always debatable but people have to make money.

@taylor stone, piracy may not hurt EA as much as they let on but you've got to be retarded if you think piracy doesn't hurt a soul. Indie games like Amnesia, World of Goo and Darwinia suffer from extremely high piracy rates and there isn't a whole lot they can do about it. When World of Goo had a pay-what-you-want sale people still pirated the game rather than pay A SINGLE CENT to support developers. With current technology you can't defeat piracy but if you somehow feel vindicated in downloading other people's poo for free because you think you're giving it to the man, think again.

In the end, it comes down to a question of greed over art... Should art be a lucrative commodity? I don;t think so. The works of a person shouldn't have a price because putting a monetary value on it corrupts the art itself. Why do you think today's pop sucks so bad? Because its all about the money and not at ALL about the artform. If all these things were genuinely free, there would be far more soul behind the work done because the artist would have more reason to put their heart and soul into creating it... For the love of sharing their vision with humanity...

Or are we all hating on the idea of TRUE artists that arent in it for the money?

People who are bitching about piracy need to understand just how little an impact we really make on the money these people make.

Metallica pissed and moaned about people illegally downloading their music,,, Artists are lucky to make a third of a cent PER ALBUM sold... All an artists money come from tours and merchandising. Movie stars make their money whether people BUY the movie or not, and production companies aren't losing enough money in the deal to make any discernable difference.

People will ALWAYS be looking to get things for free, and if they can find a way to do so, good on them. Most people who bitch are just mad because they're stuck paying for things that someone else has found a way to get for free. Piracy will ALWAYS exist, so deal with it and find something more constructive to whine about.

"'Stealing is VERY cool when its from a multi-billion dollar industry.'

OK, so do you shoplift from multi billion dollar companies[?]"

If I could download my clothes, food, and other necessities from the internet, I would. Thanks for pointing out the limitations of downloading.
