Downloading in many countries of whatever is legal, distribution however is, illegal.

Case in point: In the netherlands you pay a tax on recording material. This tax goes to an organization which pays it out to copyright holders. Equal parts for everyone.

So in the netherlands the downloading of copyrighted material is legal for personal use.

Anthropocentric thinking is perhaps a general human fault, it doesn't justify it though.
Downloading is not legal in most of the world???? Where have you been? The Pirate Bay is where? In the Netherlands I think? Its not in the USA but the world courts ruled against the Pirate Bay...........Jeez if your going to argue have facts to back it up please,

Article : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pirate_Bay

So if its legal then why the raids by the police? Why was it shut down?

Also thousands have been targeted in the UK for illegal downloading, how do I know? I lived outside of London for a year that's how!

Your right it just ticks me off to see stealing.

this site should make an effort to stop posts about stealing software by cracks and loaders, anything that is not a legal way to activate the product.

I'm done but sad to see such posts.

the pirate bay was judged in absence for completely different reasons then downloading individually WINDOWS 7, you should read the Jugdement Pirate Bay including downloading illegal Windows 7 not the newspapers.

I think that you may miss this but the MODS and ADMINS are very strict about such practices...I feel confident in saying that you will see less or none at all about methods of infiringing copyright on 7 than in other websites

Hi Howdr,

Man thanks for the history lesson, but if you quote me do it right please.

After stealing it from the Spanish and Portuguese.

Americans should be a little nicer to their hispanic citizens.

(joke everybody, hold your high horses)
Excuse me so much for making a joke.
