well *sniff, before somebody compares it to shop lifting or murder.... lolz

id like to say this. filesharing is not illeagal (as they would have you believe) because its a civil dispute. you cannot be fined, punished in some way or sent to prison by the state. therefore i see no law breaking in downloading anything with the exeption of child porn. of which i would cut ur balls off, along with ur arms and legs and spoon ur eyes out, for being a dirty ****ing mincer with no place in society other than for people to see your retarded dissfigurement.

regards :wink:

I think maybe people are a bit to moral about this, apparently a film exec has said that people don't deserve to have forever to keep computer software (even though books, DVDs, paintings etc. lets you keep them forever) so there saying about how you should be punished but people are to moral about these things. They refuse to pirate stuff.

Lets look at it this way, would you say Abandonware s wrong. Of course not, but you are doing an illegal act, but you counter that with an excuse(and its old is an excuse) but you download those things anyway. Now tell me is that any different from downloading something with limited activations or something that forces you to install something you don't want to.

I don't think it is.

Yes, in most countries, file-sharing is a civil dispute, with the exception of a few (countries like Spain for example, where its absoltely fine and considered fair use, provided it is non-profit). Of course, all that means is the fines go to groups like the RIA, or MPA, or IFPI, who really do not deserve a penny, instead of the government... so if anything, its even worse. Especially with fines like this.

And I agree with Xercies - you cannot download abandonware, or upload a Youtube video with someone else's music in it, or even rip a cd onto your pc (in the UK), and then say piracy is evil. Because that just makes you a hypocrite.
