The whole crackdown on pirating - it's never going to work. Here in the Netherlands, certain organisations are trying to get thepiratebay blocked. And the blocking works! According to the same organisations, that is. A bunch of proxies, piratebrowser and VPNs and tpb is open for everyone. They're fighting a war they know they can't win, but the companies behind the copyrights won't give up, because frankly it brings in a ******** of money.

We have the same thing over here in Sweden, and we also have some faggots calling themselves "Copyswede" - some dickweeds who basically want to "Return money to the original owners of copyrighted material" by levying taxes on electronic equipment that the think can be used for pirating.

Those ************ assmonkeys have enforced taxes upon DVD-players, for one. Also, they don't actually hand the money which they make - over to the copyright-holders.

Yup, got those ******** taxes over here as well. Quite annoying and absolutely worthless, but a great way for the fat cats behind the copyright companies to get their cash.
I'm not referring to the whole "big business is destroying the world!" but seriously, if that's not the motive for their futile attempts at destroying piracy, then it must be delusion. Which is that much scarier.

They won the war against pirating in Japan by passing a law - up to 2 years prison for pirating.

Pirating went down like hell. Plot twist: sales of music, games ect went down as well.
Apparently when files are free, the overall using of them becomes much bigger and get a bigger audience, and a certain percentage of that audience sooner or later pays for the goods. No free files = Not big audience = No much profit

Absolutely. The reason I recently bought ten more albums and had them shipped from all around the world is because of downloading. I download an artist's music, see if I like it, then either go to concerts or buy their music. I suppose that everyone does the same.

You don't fight piracy by actively combating it.

You fight piracy by providing a better product and service than pirates.

Make it more convenient to buy your stuff than pirate it and provide products and services that people are willing to pay for and the business will come to you.

iTunes did this years ago. More recently Netflix did it.

There will always be people who just refuse to pay for things but most people aren't thieves and will actually give you money if the price, product, and convenience are all right.

How is that not hypocritical?

Inb4 "I spent $60 on something that a team of several dozen people spent two years of their life working on, I own it and can reproduce it at whim regardless of the fact that the ToS which I agreed to clearly states that I cannot. Not that I don't pirate, I just don't pretend it's not stealing.

Alternatively, I can accept my moral imperfection and become a better person for acknowledging my failings instead of coming up with hypocritical, one-sided, self serving ******** arguments to excuse my behavior.

I mean I'm just spouting ******** here, but I still can't stand people who think piracy isn't stealing. Regardless of morality you don't own the software, you own a license to use it. People need to understand that.

Morally speaking, creators should be given control over who is able to access their work, and at what cost. Disagree? Run Linux and use only open source and freeware programs and nothing else. Anything else has a price tag for a reason and wouldn't exist either because the creator would starve to death or because the creator wouldn't care enough to make it. Either way, you already have your Intellectual Property free utopia, in full. If every piece of software were free you wouldn't be playing GTA V in a glorious happy union, you'd be playing solitaire because that would be the best thing anyone produced.

Sorry if I wrongly assumed you were one of those people. It's just I hate them so much I had to rant.

Illegally Downloaded Music - South Park
<-you need to watch this


Let me tell you a little story about two little boys named steve jobs and bill gates. These little boys liked to play with electronics. Eventually steve jobs met steve wozniak and claimed all of the woz's hard work as his own, like the apple one and two. Soon bill saw this and decided to rip off their ideas. But that wasn't enough, both bill and steve wanted a computer like IBM, so they stole ideas. But that still wasn't enough because steve was jealous about parc and how they had a gui, so his team of software engineers stole the idea, and improved upon it. Bill saw this and became jealous, so he also stole the parc gui and didn't think twice about it.

now both of these men became billionaires by stealing/ripping off everyone they came into contact with. So why can't I download (and apparently steal) a copy of some of their (stolen) software and it use for 6 months. One of my friends is going to work for microsft and is starting out at six figures so it's not like the company will collapse from a fraction of the population illegally downloading $10 dollar software.

I don't pirate, that's why I'm a cunt But seriously, honestly, unless it's a really old game that's like five bucks and resides in the bargain bin, that no one will get paid for anyways, a lot of people worked hard on it. A lot of people need the money they make from it and piracy is such a stupid thing. If you're willing to put in the effort to pirate it, you obviously want it and are hoping to appreciate it, so why not give credit where credit is due and pay for it. If everyone pirates then no company will know what games are good and soon all we'll have is Call Of Duty and clones of that because they'll know that's what sells.

'effort into pirating it'
yes, sitting at home, watching an illegally downloaded tv show whilst downloading a video game you'll only play for 20 minutes and get sick of is really hard and/or timeconsuming.

the only thing that would change without piracy, is the amount of free games being played. (steam has a wide range of free games, that i haven't even touched yet)

i'm not going to spend 50€ on a game if i don't know in advance it's going to be worth it.
i'm not saying it won't be, but from my experience, MANY, MANY games released for that price really weren't worth it.

i pirate my games and if they're good, i'll buy them when the price comes down to 15-20€.
i think that price should still be enough for developers to make a decent amount of money on..

Ah, I usually buy my games, but without pirating, as ronyx implied, the developers of many companies would become greedy and milk for profit, much like Activision with their "Call of Duty" series. If I torrent a game, then it's usually going to be a game I've already spent money on, like Skyrim. If I already gave that company a sale, I feel I've given them enough criticism on their game by paying for it when I did. Music, well... those rich bastards live like kings, and you're right; it is all on YouTube, anyway, what with certain artists and bands uploading the entire album on it.

If there was no piracy then games would be over 100 bucks, you would get **** for games, uncompleted games, games chopped in half and sold as day 1 dlc, publishers rushing good IPs to make it to Christmas, ****** DRM that only affects people who actually buy the game, abandoned games that stop supporting a game 1 month after it rolled out, servers being shut down after 2 years and the game becomes unplayable, completely ignoring community{s complaints, not fixing your dammed bugs, publishers taking most of the profits, ****** ports being sold for 60 bucks, AAA titles arrogantly thinking that just because they{re EA and Activision they can sell a **** game for 60 bucks, etc etc etc. Oh wait, that is already happening. Why are indie games so popular right now_ because they{re a reasonable prize and most of the time have new ideas and actually listen to the community.

I feel bad for sensible US citizens because none of the political parties really represent them.

Doesn't matter if you're liberal or conservative the Republicans are corrupt and in the pockets of big business, the Democrats are simultaneously corrupt and spineless, the Tea Party is insane, the Green Party is powerless, etc etc.

Any politician that isn't looking out for only themselves or their corporate donors has so little power they can't get anything of real scale done.

Do you seriously believe that Echelon doesn't spy on you too?

Yeah, but you're pretty monitored in Britain though. It's one of the countries with most surveillance on their own country in the West

we are monitored with CCTV on the streets because of how rowdy and we all are, but our privacy in our homes isn't.

Don't you have to call in to ensure that you're over 18 to watch internet porn?

Hmm. Guess the Amazing Atheist was lying then, or had his facts messed up. Maybe it was just a proposal that never fell.

I don't know. I just heard you had to call some sort of service in order to ensure them that you're 18 and access the site or something. Plus I have heard many wanting to ban porn and stuff there.

I heard they tried blocking some porn sites through ISP's but don't think that went into effect. i can still access any porn site without any restrictions. and besides that just blocking it through censorship, all you gotta do around that is a proxy. the NSA thing is different, its not censorship, instead they are actually collecting data on you and the things you do in order to keep tabs on what people are up to etc.

Yeah, Britain seems more less "Father knows best" than America. How do you get a proxy? Buy it?

nope just google them, you can find sites that host proxy servers and you just click them and all your data you search will go through them. just type in public proxy servers and you'll find a good few of them.

Keep believing that. Just don't do any actual research to see if it's actually true.
