Is pirating justified?
Yes. DRM is infringing upon my rights as a consumer to make copies for personal use after all.
Should people be able to download music and software with impunity?
They are. (also not all dowloading is illegal)
Or is it wrong?
I don't consider 'wrong' and 'justified' antonyms.
Are pirates stealing food from the mouthes of artists and their children?
lol. Loaded question much? Well, there's two arguments I hear a lot:
- Pirates pirate stuff they would not have bought otherwise, so "no".
- Dowloaders are the same people who on average buy more music, so "no" again.
Is piracy crippling innovation?
I dunno, the DRM schemes the publishers keep coming up with seem pretty innovative to me...
What do you think, tropers? Have you ever seen this many question marks before?
Sure have! Though, each coming with it's own sentence is quite refreshing
