    The way I look at it is if other people are using your work, then it must be valuable to the world and you should fall back and allow other humans to appreciate your stuff. People hiring lawyers and stuff really pisses me off.

    I wonder how you would feel if an employer decided not to pay you your salary because they didn't see why they should?

    I guess you would just keep turning up for work then?

    This is different. This is mostly about corporations who are already wealthy complaining because people are downloading albums or movies online.

    So theft is fine as long as it is from people who have money. I am sure you would agree with this statement if you owned a large company and people just helped themselves to your products.

    You seem to be conveniently ignoring the musicians - I suppose you think they are all charity workers or somehow don't deserve to earn a living either?

    Just because they're already wealthy doesn't mean they shouldn't get their well deserved revenue. That's like saying 'He already had food yesterday, let him starve today'.

    Sort of. It's not like the companies aren't still making bank because of torrents, it's just a small dent even though they take it pretty seriously.



    The musicians who are getting a lot of attention are usually the ones with major labels. They make most of there money from touring and shows and ad placements, not album sales. Album sales - for the vast majority of the time go towards the label (again making people like Jimmy Iovine richer).



    Like I said majors still make so much money from the album sales, real fans would rather have a physical copy of the album or the movie.

    Well personally if I was making billions, I would not give a fuck, it is greedy to be bothered in my opinion. However that does not make it any different than stealing off a poor person. It is only ones personal morals which make the difference, and this is due to guilt. A person who stole off a poor person would feel more guilt than stealing off a wealthy person.

    As for fans having a physical copy, that may have been so many years ago, but with technology these days people want as much music on their mobiles, mp3 players and laptops. I doubt many people really care about a physical copy these days, a physical copy just means you have to copy it to get it onto your MP3 player or whatever, which is an inconvenience when you can just download it.

    @thekidwithstars: I 'm sure that people will flock to work with you now that they know you 're an advocate of theft as long as the victim isn't a homeless guy :eek:

    When someone enters a business their business plan should consist of how they are going to compete with their competition/alleviate any losses to the competition. I am not saying i support torrenting but every business needs to find ways to combay its enemies. If it isnt being proactive about that then they are asking to lose money.
