I’m going to be blunt here. There are a lot of grey areas concerning Piracy. People are always saying how that’s bad, and illegal, and how I am bound to got to jail. My counter argument is this: It is only Illegal if I sell it forward for something i didn’t pay for. “But Joe it is still stealing from the person who made it.” – the annoying person says. Well, you caught me there… NOT! The economy is really bad nowadays. I am not going to spend $30 on a DVD , which film i didn’t see in the movies! and renting it has become a nightmare and Netflix just doesn’t have the films I am interested in, EX: they only have Terminator 2! not even the first film, And I am way past broke to buy the film. I hate when people steal yes! But Walmart doesn’t really have much! Not to mention that Disney gives movies a certain months and then takes it away, so it creates more demand.
Wait Joe! You’re forgetting music! Yeah about music! The music industry complains about us people pirating their songs or albums, well news flash if we like we will buy you! I remember when I was a really big fan of Good Charlotte… till the last album stunk so bad i was ashamed of such an album. And that is money I’ll never get back. It is frustrating for the music industry, but they don’t really care about their market target… us music listeners.
Books! depends on which book. Classical books are all around but since they bring out new editions and nicer looking books (which I do not mind at all) they get overly priced. sometimes there are sacrifices to be made. In the end I’ll still buy the copy.
In the end of all things there are reasons! Companies stop being greedy!
