Re: U.S. economy loses $58 billion from piracy every year.

I'm 100% sure that when people enjoying their pirated versions of movies and music that are doing it for the "greater good" and are thinking about their contribution to your so called "revolution" and not doing it for their own selfish desires. said by FFH: said by Hangmn:

Ah, the philosophy of every criminal that goes thru the criminal justice system. And people wonder why so many people are in prison in the US.
So should we effect change..or just take it?

The rampant piracy of content, while it has caused a bunch of bullshit spin and lawsuits has also led to the creation of:
Napster (legal version)
BitTorrent Store (legal version)
Are these options all good ones? Most certainly not. Some are absolutely unusable and are no real step in the right direction. Some however, are quite popular and pretty good (iTunes, Netflix) alternatives to piracy.
Sure, the content "mafiaa" should abandon DRM and get with the program full force instead of pushing out more asinine half-hearted attempts like Vongo, but the fact remains that if there was no rampant piracy of content, digital download services either would be far far worse or would not even exist at all.
As for the statement of $58b in "piracy losses" per year, that's 100% pure bullshit.
