Hey boss I think it is Intellectuall property lawOriginally Posted by mcollinstn
I agree it is not the same as steeling a drive, but it is steeling none the less. Same I gues as Martha Sterwart...... It is blue collar crime (I think this falls under that ok?) I just take issue that people who do it don't see that they are having an effect on a industry. Believe it or not most that do it do NOT think that they are doing anything wrong. Read above and it has been stated that it is LEGAL to rip DVD's Hell I know people that take great pride in thier 5000 song library of downloaded music. I admit I have dowloaded a lot of music however what I use it for it to find the song that I want and what album it comes on. Nothing pisses me off more then to purchase a album and get it home and I got the wrong one. Then it is back to the store to get the correct one.... Also there is a lot of music that is no longer in print. I do not think that the recording industry sould take any issue with that..... The one thing that Movie industry does have going for it is unless you are ready to buy HUGE hard drives storing DVD's on a hard drive is not super practical as evidence by the unit that I sell. To store 1000 DVD's would cost you about 50,000 bucks. I still feel that even if CD's were 5 bucks or even less that people would be Kaazaaing over buying. After all free is better then not free. At my last check Apples downloads on their MP3 site are such a small percentage of the downloads that happen it is not even funny and others the same. That is a buck for 3 songs for some of the places......
Hell I am just glad not to have to kiss your harry azz
Hey you still need a Runco? May have one coming in in a couple weeks
