    Seriously...

    Their own programming teams unable to protect their software sufficiently or develop the technology to protect it, that is just sickening!

    By putting it out there, they make it a risk to lose it to other people, but improve your security! And if you are overly money hungry, no one wants to do business with you!

    Pirating just makes services and products more readily available to the average individual. If the product is REALLY good... they might go out of limb to actually spend money on you. I've done that with a handful of games and movies... simply because they were that good and I want that company to benefit from it!

    HELL NO I'll spend my money on half indecent crap!

    Depends on hotfile responds really. Rapidshare was also sued by Atari, Youtube by Viacom etc, they both won. If the providers can proof i.e convinvce the judge that they've done everything in their power to prevent the distribution of pirated materials, then they'll win for sure
