Yeah. Right. Yeah. Right. Do you honestly think we don't know?
We don't care. Stop charging outrageous prices, forcing DRM down our throats, and giving us sub-par quality audio and video and maybe we'll stop. Maybe.
It's a sad day when I have to watch what CDs I buy just in case it's not usable inside a CD player (I wish I had a link to the article about this, can't seem to dig it up).
It's a sad day when I have to turn to a pirated version of a movie to get one without insinuations that I'm a pirate or that I'm going to pirate it (notice how it's the first thing people remove when they rip a movie).
And it's a VERY sad day when consumers are treated like pirates before doing anything.
It's also sad when companies don't create new material, but instead add on to old material a gajillion times (I'm looking at you Spiderman, with your version 1, 2, etc etc).
Do these justify piracy? No.
Are they part of the reason it exists? Yes.
