    Just finished reading this book about 2 weeks ago and thought I share it with you guys as being a wonderful read for this community.

    From this book I learned that;

    1) Piracy creates better quality product... Itunes compete with the pirates to produce higher quality shit and makes lotsa money

    2) The only people complaining about piracy is the same people who create shitty stuff.... yeah, think of all those IM gurus and WSO whores

    3) The unstoppable piracy movement will mean a good future for open source movement

    4) Self replicating 3D printer had already been invented and piracy can move into tangible products from home soon?

    Have a good read :D

    Not arguing with you but the book itself (actually what you learnt from the book which I assume the book teaches). The law is the law and no matter how shitty the product you have to respect it and surrender to whatever it?s demanding of you in order to use that product. The author should?ve chosen a less heated topic to write about. Some laws are plain unfair and some are there to protect people who contribute to society whether it be shit or not.

    The book does not really support piracy... it is just a study of the cause and effect that is relevant to businesses.

    Piracy is not new.... people have been doing it since the invention of radio, and even further than that.

    It submit a few case studies from the past and I don't think it suggest any technique to pirate stuff in the future.

    That 3D thingy is just a report of what had been invented now and probably would serve as a warning to businesses.

    Ummm, this is not a "how to" so don't expect any black hat torrent techniques.... it is more of an "idea" book of how you can win the pirates actually, just like how Steve Job did....
