Let's say I made a loaf of bread. I spent a good 5, maybe 6 hours making just a single loaf of bread. But the thing is, this is really tasty bread that I spent a lot of time and effort just to make. The ingredients cost a lot of money, so the bread is going to be rather expensive, but that's because the ingredients were so expensive.

Now let's say you, anon, came up to me and copied my bread. It's not stealing, you just copied it. I still have bread, and now, you have some too. But now, I made my bread for nothing. I do not need to eat this bread, and I specifically made it so that it could be sold in order for me to get money. Now I have lost money because you, anon, have copied my bread.

Sure, that wouldn't hurt you, but it would hurt all the car company that spend thousands of dollars developing and manufacturing the car in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I pirate stuff, but I don't think it's completely right.

Piracy IS stealing because althought it's a copy, the company that makes the product loses money because now you have their product for free, as opposed to buying it

They don't lose money they just don't get more of it.
They don't lose money they just don't get more of it.

no. it's more like if you own a car shop and one guy comes in an buys a car and then copies that car to everyone else so you don't sell more cars and then you are broke.

I hate how people try to justify pirating. Shut up, it's stealing, stop deceiving yourself.
Now I'm not saying that I don't illegally download, cause I do.
But I'm sure as hell not walking around thinking I have a right to do so.
I do it cause I can't afford buying every game or movie that I want to experience and also cause I simply don't give a **** .

Piracy is more like: "Imagine you sold something, but you didn't recieve any money for it".

The whole concept of intellectual property is ******** . You create that **** as a contribution to your fellow man. Einstein didn't charge royalties on everyone you used theories that HE came up with, he didn't ******* copyright his discoveries, because he did it for the good of his fellow man, not his wallet.

Music is so ****** because people make it as a means of income and not as a passion. People who make music purely for money make ****** music, and ironically, they are the ones who make the most money, because their ****** music gets so popular, and it just becomes a vicious cycle.
#280 to #278 - anonymous (04/20/2012) [-]
Einstein stole a ******** of his relativity theory from Henry Poincare. Also, his paper didn't have ANY references. That's called ******** , my friend.

Also, you ******* asshole, music is ****** because you listen to ****** music. There's good music out there if you spend a half minute on the internet. Also, let's say I make music out of passion. Let's say I spend 4-5 hours a day writing and perfecting a few songs. After that, I say hey, how about I try to make some money off of something that I do 30 hours a week? A few people buy it, 10x that download it, and I make jack **** .

Most people who write both books and music make it out of passion. It's not something they can stop doing. Even if an author can't sell his books, he's still writing in his spare time. Same with a musician. And if they decide to make a career out of their passions, then **** YOU, ARTISTS! Intellectual property is ******** !

No, piracy is wrong and it is theft. That being said, I don't have the moral standards to give a **** , and it is easier than going to blockbuster.

#110 to #106 - quickstrike (04/20/2012) [-]
it's definitely easier than going to blockbuster, since blockbuster no longer exists. lol

Now imagine that car is a super car.
People come from all over to see your kick-ass car.
You get attention for your over the line, kick-ass car.
Somebody makes a replica of your car and people start to look and give attention to the other guy.
You get less recognition for the car you crafted.
Now you have piracy my friend.

You just described plagiarism... not piracy ._.

it's still considered stealing

imagine you worked really hard on a school project and then suddenly a jock comes by
and copies all your work and hands it in, you still get your grades and the jock does too but it really ******* pisses you off because it is technically stealing
