Windows 7: Pirates Given Sentence

I wanted/needed that software and could not afford it. Therefore I pirated it and the company lost nothing because I could not afford it in the first place. Wow what ethics and morality. Maybe the first step would be to adjust your wants/needs with your budget like most people have to do.

What about the other person who easily could afford it but chooses to pirate because he can and the pirate site is available.

Keep on trying to justify being thieves if it makes you feel better. But we know what you are.

You need to calm down. Seriously. Seems to me you have been a victim of piracy yourself. Vent your anger somewhere else mate. Cos your just going to fuel an argument

Dont respond then.
I am perfectly calm.

Just like to show the hypocrisy and feeble justifications of the pirates and their supporters.

Wow, I just got called a thief over the internet...that's going to make me change my ways.

I will gladly pay for Windows and Office, because they are actually reasonably priced for how useful they are. I thinks it's ridiculous to price Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc. at thousands of dollars, when honestly, to me, it's not worth near that.

And god knows that torrents are the root of all evil...it's not like bands like Nine Inch Nails use them to distribute uncompressed wav and flac files, and high definition video. [/sarcasm]

By the way, an album that Nine Inch Nails released partly for free independently last year, ended up being the number one selling digital album on amazon last year...so don't try to tell me that "pirates" won't support a cause that they believe in.

Technically, wmacdona, piracy is not theft, so you are wrong. Did you even read that big long post I made? :P

Adobe software is obviously worth that price to a lot of other people who are not you, and for many reasons that people don't know or don't care to know about.

Do you own a video production company? A magazine? A daily newspaper? A photo studio? Try pirating software when your livelihood, and that of everyone you employ or do business with, would be in jeopardy.

Blackrose deserves Photoshop at a price no greater than, say $75, but everyone else needs to fork over $1,000.

How does this kind of mentality begin? It's ridiculous.

Actually, the company I work for is a non-profit, so I was able to get CS4 for $130. I never said it was my right to get it discounted, I just said it's ridiculous that charge your average consumer thousands of dollars for 4 plastic discs and a bunch of zeros and ones.

If it were nothing but 4 plastic discs and a bunch of zeros and ones then you'd be correct. But those zeros and ones are arranged like no one else's zeros and ones. You're paying for that special arrangement.

Adobe is not the only company that helps out 501(c)(3)s. If every business did business they way they do for non-profits there would be no business period.

Who gives a toss about these "Kangaroo" Courts with their Lickspittle judges.

You might as well halt the tides as stop P2P -- P2P existied before "The Bay" and will continue to exist long after it's gone (if it goes).

The Music Moguls might be jumping for joy now -- but there's a HUGE difference in delivering a "Kangaroo Court" Judgement and actually enforcing it --- what are they going to do -- send the Bailiffs round to several million users all over the planet -- in several countries

I'd really laugh if they came to mine -- Our Banks are totally bust so perhaps we could send them home with shiploads of stinking Fish.


(sorry aussies - but this is a well known expression for the "incredibly sympathetic and just" courts that exist in most Western jursidictions -- no derogatory slur intended on "Down Under" -- great place , love visiting).

Cheers

Sid Meiers Pirates!
There are games that will not lie down and die, the remake of the 1987 classic Pirates, to my mind, is one of them. I have it working perfectly on Win 8, but it reports that dll - msvcp71.dll - is missing on my Win 7 x 64 laptop. Why? I found and installed the dll into win 7 but still no joy. I...

Right now I'm very sick... It's horrible and my thinking process is very hazy, I was playing a few games on my PSP and it was hard to know what was going on. Anyway, I just read a few articles about piracy from "TorrentFreak" and have thought of a more moral and simple solution to piracy. If a...
