Hey guys everyone tell us that piracy makes a company to fall, it is illegal, reduces creativity(i dont know why), blah blah blah... But Pirating thigs saves the resource such as CD's/DVD's(which also saves power consuption and other resources too), many student who cant afford to buy a book will pirate thigs to gain knowledge, an artist will pirate a Movie/Games to increse his/her creativity, finally everythig should need a platform/software to view it so they pirate a software. These stuffs will improve mankind/manpower, intelligence, etc,. So why do these people are aiming to gain money for their own and simply put a word "Piracy".

I my self was changed due to piracy, without this one i couldn't imagine wat will happen to me.

Sorry if this post hurts you.Wink

I think piracy sometimes its good
well in my country at least, since Lebanon is a third world country and people are kinda poor so they wouldn't really be able to buy lets say a new DVD movie for 28$ instead they head to some places which sell pirated DVD and buy them for 2-3$ each depending on there clarity and stuff
same for games i wouldn't be able to pay 50$ for a pc game which is 2 months old so i run to the store and buy one for 3$ + it's crack

Wait... You pay money for pirated software/movies? Seriously, you're doing something wrong. Frown

EDIT And who said 'you' referred to ghostraider100? I certainly did not.

Yes, copying isn't theft, but what about the artists? Thanks to the barrage of mediocre content that is thrown at you via TV and radio, independent artists/non-whore artists are struggling, while acts like Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber rake in millions. Heck, if you can align yourself with Murdoch, Warner or Disney it doesn't matter what you produce, it'll sell.

-Buy- music and film, just not the tasteless bland shovelware that the powers that be try to force feed you. Buy -directly- from artists.

You don't know many acts, then :+

People who sell their shit on bandcamp, or soundcloud. People selling non-digital music from myshopify, bigcartel; all no labels or homegrown labels.

Anything good these days isn't backed by a "just-eat-your-fucking-dinner" Disney "we sell your daughter to TV" label.

For me,piracy is advantageous in two ways:
1.)It gives me almost free access to TONS of books,movies,etc..

and there is no loss to the authors either...since there's NO WAY that I am doling out thousands for books I dont know much about or going to the movies or getting dvds!!

2.)It gives me access to LOADS of materials that arent even available here!!

By the way..most of the technical books that are needed in studies are TOOOOOO costly for most students..the Libraries in college are good but 15-20 copies are barely enough for all the students..so most of the guys who cant afford good books go to second grade books....and loose good opportunities..So,piracy is good.

@ghostraider100:
BSNL's unlimited 256 kBps is quite good..just leave the PC running at night..though remember to close of unneeded processes to help save some processing power(and electricity)..

one good example:EXPLORER.EXE
you dont need it when you arent on the comp.Smile

Moshbat caught distributing his own Music!!

SUCH A CRIME!!

To the topic:
As long as you are sure you wouldnt anyway have PAID for the thing,there's no harm in downloading it.

But if you think you notice a GREAT software or something that you CAN buy,just go and buy it! Smile

Cause while all the companies are evil and all,it really isnt a fair fight,you can pirate just about anything..and if a software seems stubborn and you are REALLY irritated,just dd(I never did this myself)Smile

Piracy is theft. It's their work you are stealing. If you ever make something worth while (probably never hope you prove me wrong though) you can give it away for free, others don't want to.

But, do we need copyright law? Yes, it ensures that when you invent something (spend time and money on it) you'll earn money back. Lets take the drug industry, people live shorter lives and indeed just die because they can't afford medicines which are sold at huge markups. The obvious solution is to stop companys owning a monopoly on drugs and sell them at a small profit over their cost.

How long would a drug company last in this situation? It wouldn't even exist... A single drug that makes it to market is backed by hundreds of thousands of compounds which didn't work at all, thousands which killed things more than they cured them hundreds which aren't worth making, dozens which are unusable due to side effects. A handful make it to regulation where most are dropped cause they don't work any better than what we have. In the end one makes it through and money spent on that single drug over a billion dollars.

That's not a throw away comment, that is a substantiated fact. So the drug that costs $2 to make cost billions to develop and wouldn't exist without copyright law.

Photoshop is an excellent piece of software which makes artists make fancy things. If you want a CS6 which is even better than CS5 then you need to be willing to pay the price. Also if people didn't pirate software photoshop would cost less (not much probs but less).

Doesn't give you the right to take one. If it's life saving then of course there should be means for you to get one. Which is why the NHS is a great thing.

No one needs paid for music or paid for software.... there is open source alternatives for nearly EVERYTHING. Maybe if no body who couldn't afford PS had it people would be forced to work on GIMP.

But back to your point it's their idea it's up to them to decide if they want to give you one pro bono. Loads of products do student prices or even free for non-commercial use prices it should be at their discretion we can't take it cause we want it.
