the simple fact is that megacorporations will never beat the pirates, and digital piracy will always exist in some form

the pirates are happy where they are - and they arent going anywhere, its the publishers and the customers who are really sweating it

its not a philosophical debate, its not a theory - its a reality, get used to it. the bullshit "morality" people tout to make them feel like "good guys" isnt going to affect it, neither is some kind of wacked out "unbreakable DRM" scheme

as a phenomena, its highly entertaining to watch where people "draw the line" on some kind of moral issue, then turn around and fuck over somebody else in some other way because that particular fucking over is "acceptable"
 
Go forth, and kill!
