Before I rant, just want to throw a quick [email protected]# YOU to Hollywood.
Does anyone actually stop to wander why people take full advantage of getting FREE stuff on the internet? When it comes to what is right and wrong, where music, software, and movies are concerned, there's a thick gray area.
The music mafia has been taking us all for a ride for many years. The same can be said about Hollywood, especially nowadays since 99% of all modern movies are garbage. One can even speak politically in that our country has been manipulating us to the max for so long. We've been robbed and taken advantage of.
The companies and organizations I referred to combined with political entities are all working together in this capitalistic culture. It is the existence of piracy that is a bleesing in disguise ready to bring down some of the rich and create a better balance in society. The poor and middle matter most of all. And a remindance of that is in order. It's coming. When it finally happens, piracy will be no more. It wont be necessary. So get what you can WHILE you can get it. I am all for buying things again. But not until those things are of the quality I expect at the price I expect.
Do you realize all the CRAP that's for sale out there? You have to spend quite a bit of money just to review a product that cannot be returned. Its unacceptable these days. That is another reason why piracy has revolutionized our way of thinking. We need to be able to try things on a trial basis. Otherwise we continue to be the same inefficient, wasteful culture that the rich have created.
