of course with the advent of the digital britain report, soon we will all be assumed to be pirates until proved otherwise, and can have our internet access cut off if we're even suspected,

It's quite simple really.

Downloading something you are meant to pay for is theft, no matter how many ways it can be rationalized to the contrary.

Do individuals have to like it? No.

Is the proposed method of enforcement fair? No.

Does the proposed punishment fit the crime? Far from it.

Is getting vexed in a forum thread that has zero impact on the outcome pointless? Yes.

According to the mentality here, I'm gonna pay 750$ for a software that I use rarely... Or upgrading my software that I use the most often to the version that I don't like while paying a 550$...

...yeah, right. If you have that money, good for you. But, not me.
