What do you think about video game piracy?

I participate in it, and regularly download pirated games.

What do you think?

You make ravioli for a living. There may be many ravioli, but yours is special and unique in its own ways. You sell it at a somewhat expensive price. You often sell seasoned ravioli for extra prices. A lot of people will buy your ravioli, agreeing to the prices and that it's fair for the quality of the ravioli.

Some people will steal from you, knowing that despite the hard work you put into your ravioli, they are inconsiderate thieves.

Don't steal a n*gga's ravioli.

Oh almost forgot the ending.

Eventually the ravioli thieves were caught. They all received 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Before they left for prison, a pissed off Italian shot them with his boomstick.

The Italian was later sued by the ravioli thieves, and won a $85,000 settlement.

True moral of the story - the legal system is f*ck'd.

But hey, now the thieves can actually buy the ravioli!

Well, those people with $0 should get a job.

Can't get a job? Sucks to suck. Beg on the streets if you must. That's how it is. Hate to break it. You're crashing with your mom for a few months.

It's not theft because they still have it. I am against copyright laws in general.

Genghis's better story:

You make ravioli.
I clone it, is wonderful for everyone, end world hunger. But then the man comes. Seeing as how the world doesn't need food corporations anymore, they kill you and all cloning technology is forced to be destroyed.

Morale: Clone ravioli, f the man.

Genghis, that's cute.

But- anyone who actually pirates nows how to stay safe:

1). Don't seed. Most people get caught seeding.
2). never download porn through torrents. ever. the porn companies would sooner sue than have their porn taking down from sights.
3). a company must usually file a legal suit against you, as police rarely investigate people who are simply downloading
4). Don't pirate music.


my own private rules:
1). Only pirate stuff by looking up "get *name of video game* free on youtube*" then, ignore all videos where the person isnt speaking. then, READ ALL COMMENTS PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.

then download, and scan with bit defender.

We have copyright laws to promote creativity and invention.

It's also there so that you can't steal another's idea and make it yourself.

It's also there nowadays so that you don't steal money from people.

many pirates are even against pirating indie games.

No terraria for me until i get some money :(



plus: it's kinda sad that its far easier to pirate and crack a game than to f*** with DRM.

Loli makes an important point.

There are people with families who rely on game development to support themselves. Also, if it's an online game n expect the plug to be pulled when they don't have money to keep servers running.

There's always going to be ethic chumps, don't worry.

Look at Wikipedia. Pretend it's a video game. It is free. It doesn't advertise.

Genghis, I pirate mainly old games. (ie, pre 2011)

Also, I wouldn't have bought the games anyway.

Piracy is overblown in some ways (like how much damage it does) yet way underdstressed in other ways (like its far easier than most think).

This whole piracy mentality reminds me of a Patton quote:

Paraphrase

"Let's say 1 out of 1000 truck drivers is too scared of getting bombed by enemy aircraft, and thinks it smart to leave and not deliver the field rations and ammunition to win the battle. What's funny is that the other 999 drivers had the same idea.

We have copyright laws to promote business, not the majority folk. Ideas can't be stolen. Ideas can be cloned. You're not stealing money, you're letting folk save.

With no copyright laws, everything is in public domain, and folk make things because they want to, not because they have to.

Then they all got bombed and died, the munitions were destroyed.

also: Isn't gamestop technically pirating, too? the developers (including indie ones) arent getting money for it. does that mean there should be console DRM, locking all games to being used on just 1 console?
