  The biggest problem w/ Piracy

Poor quality "bootlegs" are the biggest "blackeye" in Piracy

I have seen some "p**s poor" bootleg movies in the U.S. on the "street"

People need to care about the quality of there bootlegs

THAT's what gives bootlegs a bad name

The U.S. authorities are concerned because bootleg products in China have been produced lately w/ higher quality than the "REAL THING"

Sometimes the Chinese companies we pay pennies to produce our pruducts, keep producing them after the order is completed, & the Chinese Government just looks the other way

Damn, some people just won't let you use them, & except it like they are supposed to

Do I blame people for subsisting on the King's deer in the King's forest & call them poachers?

Naa, it's like the "WAR on DRUGS", they created the market, now they have to deal w/ it

I agree and refuse to buy bootleg movies on the street. I make better copies of the movies I buy than these street hawkers of poor quality DVD movies.

Either way you slice it, it's wrong to sell pirated movies for profit.

But the problem will always be there as it was when video tapes were the popular movie media.


Life is too short, make the best of it!

hehe ... i just cant help myself from not buying pirated as im only a student and i live in a country where the currency rate is 3.8 = 1 dollar also .. the average income is only 300 dollar. i cant buy original games as it would cost me 100 bucks of my currency and i obsolutely cant buy original windows .. as it would cost me 600 bucks of my currency..

Have you seen Fallout 3, it was awsome ~!!

Are they keeping prices artificially high? I mean, they say this is stealing artists money, but in a capitalist society, why should they have massive profit margins? why are they bitching when their massive profits drop a little. Is there any good reason why we should allow musicians to have far more money then the majority of the population. People do harder jobs. It's undemocratic.

Don't want to start a big arguement

But I think the democratic way is to let everyone bargain for the highest wage the market will bear (within the law), & as long as they are not publicly subsidezed

Price fixing is illegal

& If we limit income, that would like socialism

EDIT: never mind I said anything, if we argue about gfx cards, politics could get ugly Hehehehehehehe J/K
