im against piracy like most of us.
BUT my personal opinion on it all is or average users windows, programs including ones like MS Word, Bench tools, diag tools, and all should be free.. We spend good money to build a system then have to add on an extra couple hundred easy for programs.
Companies should however have to pay, they write off in taxes anyways abd get money back
. Make an OS specifically for business use with business programs and all.
Gaming im both ways kinda single player should be free that way ppl can share
and get other to wanna play then charge for online so when everyone wants to play together they have to pay. when you play with yourself (haha had to put it cause it works and makes me lmao) it should be free cause its never the same after your in a group.
for console gaming if you download game same as above should apply i think, but if you buy a disk that would like be paying for online so that disk anywhere if legit can play online any machine easy security link disk to a serial number printed on it think that should work combined with user name an pw login maby.
