Maybe so, but it's HBO that is refusing to take my money. I don't have cable TV service, but love HBO's series and was a subscriber while I had cable TV service. Since I "cut the cord", HBO has given me no option to subscribe. Since HBO has made it that I can't subscribe without ordering cable service I don't want or need, I torrent the shows.
As I said I'm against pirating. Those that want something for nothing I have no use for, but in your situation I can see a difference. Those that WANT to give HBO money but HBO refuses then really fuck HBO.
If a black guy walks into a store that is owned by a white racist and the black guy wants to buy a $2 load of bread and the white owner says "I don't sell to black people" and the black guy leaves the $2 on the counter and walks out did he "steal" the bread? Nope.
