Bottom line: Charging for intellectual property is a crime...

"Intellectual property rights are considered by economists to be a form of temporary monopoly enforced by the state...."

Monopoly forced by the state?! Sounds like the hand of socialism. Convenient since it gives the government more power to pry into your affairs.

Who told you that, the TPB CEO. Bottom line it's stealing. Can someone tell me when stealing became socially acceptble.

Whether I agree with the system or not, I've already set aside 400 dollars to buy me a Windows 7 Ultimate License. I'm too impressed with it to obtain it any other way...

Careful how you say this.... (Not stating an opinion, just saying).

I prefer to play an Arbiter, or Devil's advocate in debates like this, so I will not state my opinion on it.

I will say this: Nobody really likes paying their hard earned money for things, and everyone loves free things.
BY LAW: Pirating is ILLEGAL. SHARING (in this case!) is considered by most to be Pirating.

As for you 12eason, you are in there with the Linux crowd. They have their perks, but it is just not widespread. Might be better for the human race in the long run, but its not going to happen right now.

Several things to note:

Bands deserve my money - if they spent their own hard earned money making their CD and marketing it themselves.

If *anyone* affiliated with the **AAs is involved, F'em. I ain't buying squat.

Also, I have acquired things in the past, but now it is mostly legit for me - I have found several pieces of software that I cannot live without and I have bought them (DisplayFusion, Vista, WinRAR, etc.) and I have to say that I am happy being able to buy stuff that I used to not buy before.

but if the **AAs get involved, I'll revert faster than a lightning strike. I despise jackasses that are screaming bloody murder b/c their profits are being hurt b/c they were too friggin stupid to realize that the Internet was a great tool and not just some fad. Boo hoo, go cry a ****ing river somewhere else, cause I ain't go no cheese to accompany your whine.

Now, on to IP: While on the one hand I hate that you an be sued over IP, I have to say that I do think it is fair that IP suits brought on by the original composer/writer/developer are fair - but that IP should in no way be allowed to be transferred at all. As soon as it is 'sold' it is 'null and void' in my eyes.

I think you're entirely backward on what you just wrote - this is a debate b/c of the very fact that none of us mods / admins have censored it.

If it were trolling we'd have brought the hammer down already, don't you think?

Er, so what if you've let the comments stand (even though you didn't on the previous occasion). If I'm going to get a warning every time I express a dissenting opinion, clearly any 'debate' if going to be very one-sided.

I can well understand you not wanting links to illegal content. I can even just about fathom you not wanting discussions about illegal activities. But if you're going to do that, it's a bit off to first allow the discussion, then give only one side of the discussion infractions for rules violations.

If you were consistent you'd lock the thread and warn the OP.
