[engadget] Windows piracy built this country - Page 8

post #71 of 106
Before the DMCA, copy something, weather it be software or not, was perfectly legal, as long as you do not sell it for profit. Just thought I would add that to an old thread I had a subscription to!

I still find it kinda wrong that someone can spend a few years writing an OS and get a few hundred million dollars when a harder working person wont make nearly as much.

That's why *My friends* felt no guilt when they used to run xp.

Urm, I'm sorry, but you can't argue that one.

Things are worth the price people are willing to buy it at. Footballers get paid millions, it may not be 'fair' - but that's life. The hardest working is not the best paid - the most in demand is.

i love piracy and also hate it in a way cause i would always sell mixtapes at school and i would only be able to sell maybe a 100 and like maybe 400 people would have them because people would let them take the cd home a burn it, so what did i do i raised my prices trying to get as much out of the 100 as i could.

I guess that's just your opinion then.. in my opinion a working nurse should be getting paid more than a programmer who writes maybe 10% of an OS and gets millions.

I just don't feel bad at all, actually kinda good

Now my vista installation is legal though, with the desktop employment kit key.

Pointless thread...


Also, I don't understand how pirated music supports communism because the point of communism is government control over everything. I would actually think that pirating music would be very un-communist. Now someone will argue well all the communists countries are the ones pirating the most ( China, Russia etc.) but thats simply because they probably dont make enough money to afford what they are pirating. Most Americans before the past couple of years could afford to purchase CD's, software, games, etc...

I think a better thing to say to be honest would be " If you pirate your a theif". To me lots more people would understand the point and the word communist is as outdated as the word ******. It's just a mindless insult that no one wants to hear anymore.
