My favorite is the classic "Well, I want it, but I can't afford, therefore it makes it okay."

That's not really a solid argument to fall back on youtube is honestly pretty bad at monitoring the content unless it's mass reported or a copyright claim is filed by a major industry player. I've legit seen porn on youtube that was up for like a year or two before anyone caught on.

It's sad ain't it? I've literally seen people like "Well, I only wanted to try it, I would have deleted it I promise!"

"idc lol" - Same As Before


" lol don't worry, the cracked version has missing stuff xP But yeah, it's not really "stealing" per say as much as it is "trying out before buying". Personally I'll try something when it first releases as a cracked version before I'd buy it. (As I did with all RM engines and such because they're quite expensive).


-cut some things-


 As far as the cracked version goes, they'll prolly have the update for that soon too I'd imagine. Those who crack programs and stuff are usually quick about it. (Pirating actually helps the gaming industry people <.< because most gamers won't buy an expensive game or program if they don't know how it works or if it's worth it. Recently a lot of high titles have suffered losses in sales because they're using Anti-pirating measures. Sucks to be them xP)" - Rationalizor2

I have pirated games to see if my toaster of a machine back in '06 could run the games, and then I'd buy it afterwards if I could, delete it if I couldn't. Here's looking at you Halo 1...Good times.

Pirating does not equal stealing, but it is still nearly (99%) as bad (only difference is it doesn't stop another from buying it).


The funniest argument is pirating due to not liking a company.   You know, like pirating COD to give them the finger...


...and to help the population be bigger to help the product be more attractive as a result (they totally do not pirate because they just don't want to buy it).


by the way:


Pirating = hurt programmers, developer, and other lower position staff members that actually worked on the game (but had no say on what they were making).


Pirating != hurting publishers, big wigs, people who actually make the decisions (they just make the people  making games suffer more).


Games, movies, etc are not a necessity thus there is no need to have them and enabling such people will do nothing but send the message that people deserve things for nothing (which can cause people to have no desire to work hard and thus will remain poor as they think they shouldn't have to try).


Pirating is not right, the end.

@AwesomeCool What do I do when I can't find a physical copy of a movie I really like for my region (I admit to not having checked for digital copies - DVDs are easier to bring to my mom's house for a movie day)? It's also technically illegal to rip the DVD or region hack my DVD player, and there are only so many times it lets me change the region. When do we hit grey areas?


FYI this is an actual issue for me.

There was an accident at the stone mason's workshop today. Some @The Stranger was seen on the premises, ranting about evil secret guild business before they destroyed the Statue of David. Public and law enforcement will keep an eye out for vandals!
I suppose at some point I should figure out how to change my name on here.
