Re: Worth it
said by ITALIAN926:30 years ago I could buy a tape from a friend if he didn't like it. He could buy a new album every week and sometimes he just didn't like what he got so he sold the tape to someone else because he bought the tape, it was his, and he could sell it, sell that something he had.
$20 per infingement, so yea, go ahead and "seed it" for a day. You pay $20 to give it to someone, and they pay $20 for taking it. Its a great plan.
Never a piracy article without Karl endorsing the VPN workaround. You guys go through a lot of hassle just to break the law, it would be easier to simply not do it.
Today they have convinced the public and lawmakers that the very practice of doing that is not acceptable. You borrow, you rent, you use for a limited time the media you are told you are "buying". They set up systems that detect infringement and deem guilty first then after months of wait deem if the use is fair or not or just let the complaint expire. They treat music and video that is produced by corporations entirely different than music or video produced by individuals. Individuals who are not given copyright enforcement tools, not given legal preference to infringing media use removal, not given an opportunity to have any say in how media is handled over a world wide public data network.
When the majority is not given the opportunity to make the laws they live by and then for some to proclaim how that majority is the bad guy for breaking those laws is just pure ignorance.
