Linux applications will always be free...if there is a paying version of a program, there will also be a free opensource version.
Not bad at all...

Well, first off, Pirating is copying not stealing, there is a BIG difference.
Downloaders aren't taking profit away from the company by taking a
physical disk which costs money, they are meerly downloading a copy...
In some countries (USA) this is indeed illegal to copy.

Copying (for personal use) in some countries (example Canada) is not illegal.

And your friend should tell that to his bosses if he thinks it is ok to steal on of their games. Seriously, if he thinks it is ok i dare him to tell the bosses. I mean if it is ok then surely they would agree, would they not?

I'm not trying to provoke an argument. Just merely putting my opinion across.



No one should be doing it, but remember the pirates and the public were doing it way before the IRAA were. So we really don't have any grounds to criticize. They are merely playing them at their own game. Is it wrong? Yes, but then that decision wouldn't have to be made if we never stole in the first place.

I never understood the whole 'in moderation' argument either. It is evident that no one is doing it in moderation and it never will be. It is simply to easy to do and we get greedy, throw us an inch and we will take a mile.

The only way is to abolish it.
Dude, you are such a conservative puppet.

This is the kind of thing i am talking about.

And you really want em to calm down when it is quite obvious people are cheering for the pirates?
Dude, you gotta relax man... You can't fight a 1 sided battle, if I got hacked, damn right I'd start hackin back, getting information like that. It's the way it goes. Go smoke some weed or somethin' man.
