But still illegal and immoral.
how is it immoral O_O
It's called stealing.
I never understood how its stealing. in my case I would never under any circumstances go see a movie in a threatre. I have a perfectly good home theartre setup here where I don't have to use crappy bathrooms, be around a bunch of loud strangers, pay $10 for popcorn etc. so basically the movie industry would never get money from me anyway and I am taking nothing tangible from them so Id on't see how its stealing. If I were to go to best buy and steal a DVD then it is different because best buy just lost $ since they paid for the disc and all that. I also would be perfectly willing to pay to stream new movies in like I do for old ones through netflix or rent/buy blu rays of new movies when they come out. but since the movie industry would rather sue people than innovate, piracy will continue to grow.
I never gave a damn about movie piracy. Only problem is most of their DVDs are horrible
I have a very extensive collection of movies on DVD. The vast amjority of them are produced before 1995. I'm waiting for delivery of The African Queen, His Girl Friday, Cabin in the Sky and a Mae West anthology.
New movies suck. Just special effects, explosions and crappy stories. Give me Billy Wilder, you can keep Cameron Crowe.
Yup, it may be a bitch but the laws are there to protect the copyright holder. If I come up with an idea, or product that can make me money and someone "pirates" it, then that person and all who "support" him are in fact stealing from me. I have no love for the movie and recording industry but theft is theft.
Then you are one stupid fuck!!
Now there's an accurate and concise comment.
