Now people will say things like well I do not have enough money to buy the damn product or any other pathetic excuse. Well I say then you should not be playing, listening, watching or using it then.
You would not go into a store and wear something you know you cant afford for the simple fact that you will not be able to pay for it.
Yes I have been guilty of this in the past with tons of copied PS1 and PS2 games and PC games. Ill be the first to admit that but I have got rid of all that and just buy my games now (XBOX 360 and PS3) or rent them.
If I know I cant play the games due to money problems or whatever I am no going to go steal it from the shop which is effectively what you do when you download a game or music or film or software.
Another problem is that we are so used to doing this activity and we know we can get away with it. We have lost the idea of what we are actually doing.
The Internet is one big DOWNLOAD SPACE and we forget to question what is wrong to download and what is ok. That is why we give names such as FREEWARE, SHAREWARE etc. to certain things or DEMO.
The funny thing is that if there was a game or DVD or music CD just sitting there the same people who download them on-line would feel bad picking it up in real life due to the simple fact that they know its wrong. That is no different when you click the download button, me included.
So yeah that is my two cents (not preaching) about the issue on piracy. And yeah I still download programmes such as Prison Break to watch and a few movies. I know I sound like a hypocrite right now but like I said I am not preaching but just giving my view on the subject.
